Medical Simulation

The purpose of this work is to survey training simulators used for medical purpose. Medical simulation is an important topic in health sciences. For now, we set will focus on computer-based simulators, e.g, web-based or virtual reality-based simulators. The motivation of such simulators is to provide a safe training environment, which can be used, e.g., to learn new procedures, rehearse rare cases, refresh deteriorating skills or assess skills.
