Where Is the Best Place To Do Robotic Surgical Simulation & Training?

Simulation is increasingly recognized as being an important component when learning how to drive a surgical robot. However, very little discussion has been held about where the best place is to learn and does the location of the simulator make a difference in its utilization. Essentially there are three places where simulation can be used…
