Surgical skills training plays an important role in medical education. In recent years, substantial progress has been made in the development of simulation programs and tools for the training and assessment of a trainee’s performance. However, these devices have generated controversy about their validity for arthroscopic surgical training, and the bridge between technological development and educational needs has not yet been clearly established. From an educational point of view, a key feature for a well-designed training program is that the learning objectives should be explicitly defined (Biggs 2003). The aim of this chapter is to address the learning objectives in simulation training, and subsequently, we focus on the number of procedures that are required to become competent.
