London Met student comes up with pioneering surgeon training system
Training for surgeons could be revolutionised thanks to a new teaching method – developed by a student.
London Metropolitan University student Zahra Charaffdeen led a team in developing the ‘Route 4’ training system, which enables users to practice surgical procedures at their own pace.
The system recently won an award run by the university, which has a campus in Whitechapel Road.
“Our business is pioneering the way technical skills are taught”, said Zahra.
“Just as flight simulators result in improved air safety, surgical simulation improves the technical skills of medical students, doctors and surgeons. The development in skills will enable better standards of patient care, and ultimately, cost savings for the NHS.”
