Recruitment for Study- Volunteers Needed

The Morimoto Lab in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department is looking for volunteers interested in participating in a study of a laparoscopic training system.

The study will take place in the Center for the Future of Surgery. The volunteer will be asked to train on his or her own time using one of three possible training methods. A basic skill level assessment will be performed before and after the training period. The purpose of the study is to compare the use of the new interface with standard training methods in order to develop more engaging and cost-effective training solutions.

There will be no compensation. Instead, through this study, volunteers will get to experience testing a novel training interface. For more information on how to sign up, please send inquiries to morimotolab@eng.ucsd.edu. Your assistance in helping us meet our research goals would be greatly appreciated.
