The Royal Society of Medicine cardiothoracic section held their annual meeting in London last week. The event titled “Frontiers – Simulation for training in cardiothoracic surgery” was packed with high quality poster and podium presentations from delegates across the country. Inovus CEO, Elliot Street, was invited to deliver a headline talk on affordable simulation. His talk highlighted the importance of ‘take home simulation’ as a much needed adjunct to traditional methods of training. His balanced views on the future of surgical training, drawn from his clinical background and time as an industry leader in affordable simulation, were well received by the high calibre audience.
