C-SATS Technical Performance Assessment
Up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for completing all 3 stages
This performance improvement educational program is designed for surgeons of all specialties who conduct minimally invasive or open surgeries.
This program is designed to provide physicians with performance review of surgical techniques. Surgeons will submit performance videos of dry-lab, simulation, or animate surgery. Depending on the surgical method and type of procedure, videos will be evaluated using one of the follow validated assessment tools:
- Global Evaluative Assessment of Robotic Skills (GEARS)
- Global Operative Assessment of Laparoscopic Skills (GOALS)
- Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills (OSATS)
- Robotic Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills (ROSATS)
Learners will review high performance videos that allow them to see best practices among surgeries using the same surgical method so they can improve their performance in future surgeries.
After submitting videos for assessment and reviewing their performance report, participants will be able to:
- Describe the performance domains for their surgical method
- Identify both their strongest and weakest performance domains
- Analyze their surgical performance against that of expert surgeons
- Recognize the differences among technical skills domains between their performance video and that of an expert surgeon
- Re-evaluate their performance
