Because access to simulation script regarding survey results of robotic surgical training centers often does not align with hours residents are free (7), for obstetric and gynecology residents in the United States formal evaluations from faculty can be difficult to obtain. . In this study, 177 residents completed a 31-item ques- Video recording of simulator work is one potential solution tionnaire that covered a range of topics surrounding robotic (8), but this might not capture true hand technique at the training. Surprisingly, over 30% of respondents did not need console (9).
