Medical training and simulation ​

Eye tracking is an effective visual assessment tool that can augment current training and evaluation methods in simulated healthcare environments. For example, it can provide information about where a surgeon is specifically looking during surgery. Also, standard simulation practices rely on debriefings that without eye tracking are only captured by learner recall and video recordings. Eye tracking is a tool that can easily integrate into simulation teaching practices and supplement standard process with visual attention data.​

Benefits of Eye Tracking​​

Use eye tracking to gain quantitative and objective data to help better understand how individuals or teams performed in a simulated or naturalistic task. It is also useful for self-assessment and evaluation of comprehension. Insights may include:

  • Realtime view of live situation​
  • Enhance remote video instruction
  • Visualize expert skills and techniques​
  • Assess comprehension and competency​
  • Excellent review process tool

“The ability to actually see through the surgeon’s eyes is important,” and “visualizing where their hand motions are is critical to success.”

Doug Miyazaki, M.D
