2. Debate whether the return on investment for surgical simulation has been strong.

3. Analyze reviews from recent literature regarding the effectiveness of simulation, review examples of excellent studies in surgical simulation, delineate the gaps in evidence in support of surgical simulation, and map out a plan for future directions in surgical simulation.

* Light breakfast and coffee/tea will be available at the venue.
