Surgeon William Halsted’s model of ‘see one, do one, teach one’ has long been the blueprint in medicine when it comes to obtaining proficiency in procedural skills. Although it still forms the basis of medical training to this day, it has been shown to be more effective when combined with other forms of teaching methodologies.

As medical technology rapidly advances, the role of simulation facilitates experiential learning in carrying out procedures in a safe environment for both trainees and patients. Allowing the opportunity to repeatedly practise clinical skills on simulated models increases the likelihood of trainees reaching competence in skills prior to practising on real patients. This is particularly relevant in ionising procedures that have the added risk of radiation to the patient, trainee and, in some cases, trainer.
