Surgical education has been compressed by integrated residency programs and restrictions on the number of hours surgical residents are allowed to work. Instilling basic technical skills as early as the first year of medical school can help maximize preparedness for surgical rotation and residency. This overview includes a detailed description of low, medium, and high-fidelity simulation-based training techniques and recommends introduction of surgical simulation early in the medical school curriculum. A personal vignette highlights this recommendation.
