The My Virtual Mitral Valve course offers trainee surgeons or healthcare professionals the opportunity to join in a training continuum aimed at technical development of their surgical skills in the field of: G: To optimize the initial learning process of the mitral valve repair procedures G: To stimulate interested scholars in learning cardiac surgery O: To deconstruct the mitral valve repair into teachable components. O: To learn the three dimentional anatomy of the mitral valve and apparatus O: To understand the spatial relationships of hands, needle holder, needle, the mitral valve ring O: To annihilate the negative phase of the learning curve on the first mitral valve repairs in human O: To confront and annihilate the scholar with possible technical errors O: To optimize the pace of the first mitral valve repair procedures in humans

All users should note that the rankings and evaluations received from the expert faculty are for evaluation purposes according to the standards of the course and they are intended to assist the user in achieving G: To optimize the initial learning process of the mitral valve repair procedures G: To stimulate interested scholars in learning cardiac surgery O: To deconstruct the mitral valve repair into teachable components. O: To learn the three dimentional anatomy of the mitral valve and apparatus O: To understand the spatial relationships of hands, needle holder, needle, the mitral valve ring O: To annihilate the negative phase of the learning curve on the first mitral valve repairs in human O: To confront and annihilate the scholar with possible technical errors O: To optimize the pace of the first mitral valve repair procedures in humans

As such, the evaluations are not part of the users accredited qualifications as a surgeon and they have no impact on the users formal qualification process. As such the evaluations are for guidance and learning purposes only and should not be used as an indication of the users actual ability to perform the task on a real patient in live surgery.
