Competency based medical education (CBME) is an outcomes-based approach to the design, implementation, assessment, and evaluation of medical education. The goals of Competency Based Medical Education are to improve patient safety, patient health outcomes, and enhance the competence and performance of individuals, groups and teams. Simulation-based training is a proven effective method to improve the skills and competency of the student by permit-ting repetitive practice before an actual procedure is performed on real patients.
e Virtual reality simulation has been used successfully to teach technical skills such as laparoscopic surgery, carotid stenting, gall bladder surgery, and knee arthroscopy.
The specific aims of this project are:
- Build a multi-user, multi-site virtual reality simulator for anesthesia management and team training
- Evaluate the simulation as a tool for competency based medical education
- Compare the effectiveness of the simulator with mannequin based simulator for competency based medical education.

Randomized 15 residents out of 30 Post Graduate Year 1 or 2 anesthesia residents (not involved in initial Virtual Reality testing) will be receive Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity simulation training by Virtual Reality simulation
Other: Training by Virtual Reality Simulation
Those Randomized 15 residents will be receive Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity simulation training by Virtual Reality simulation and after two weeks, they will be evaluated by investigators by using the same performance evaluation tool.
Randomized other 15 residents out of 30 Post Graduate Year 1 or 2 anesthesia residents (not involved in initial Virtual Reality testing) will be receive Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity simulation training by mannequin based simulation
Other: Training by Mannequin Based Simulation
Randomized other 15 residents will be receive Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity simulation training by mannequin based simulation and after two weeks, they will be evaluated by investigators by using the same performance evaluation tool.
- Number of tasks correctly performed [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
The primary outcome in performance evaluation is the number of tasks correctly performed during management of the Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity event. Investigators will use the same performance evaluation tool.
The performance evaluation tool will assess the trainee's performance (i.e., medical management of Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity) per performance evaluation tool
- use the Anesthesiologists' Non-Technical Skills (ANTS) tool [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]The Investigators will use the anesthesiologists' non-technical skills (ANTS) tool in the Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity Event (Data Collection Tools, Supplemental Digital Content 2, http://links.lww.com/AAP/A45) as described by Neal.
