Brief Summary:

The medical school educates students on essential skills, which is an important task. Especially, endotracheal intubation is considered an important option in the management of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

To avoid technical and ethical concerns of training involving real patients, conventional teaching methods incorporate the use of a low-fidelity manikin in replacement. However, the manikin anatomy often lacks the realism of a live human.

The addition of virtual reality technology may optimize learning by providing an ethical, cost-effective and more realistic modality to acquire the basic skills of intubation. If it is proven to be effective, efforts to integrate virtual reality technology into routine training of such procedures in the medical school should be promoted.

The investigators hypothesize that the addition of virtual reality mobile application to conventional training will improve procedural skill dexterity and proficiency and hence, improve learner's satisfaction and confidence in performing endotracheal intubation.

Additional self-directed learning and practice using virtual reality simulator
Other Name: virtual reality simulator for endotracheal intubation

No Intervention: Control
Conventional training session which includes didactic teaching and low-fidelity simulation session involving trainer's demonstration, followed by hands-on practice

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total score of required 20-key points of intubation during endotracheal intubation procedure [ Time Frame: within 1 month after training session ]
    During the intubation training evaluation using manikin, the score was added by using the check list Which is consisted of the patient's positioning, opening the mouth, laryngoscope handling, glottis view evaluation, insertion and fixation of the endotracheal tube, etc, and consists of a total of 20 points

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. impact assessment of simulation-based education on real-life TAP block [ Time Frame: within 2 months after training session ]
    evaluation the influence of the training session on resident confidence and anxiety in the clinical setting and explore trainee attitudes toward simulation-based training in anesthesiology education using 5-point Likert scale (1 = no effect, 2 = little improvement, 3 = some improvement, 4 = moderate improvement, 5 = substantial improvement).
