Surgical Simulations

Surgeons registered for the general session may also register for the Cleft Lip Simulation &/or Cleft Palate Simulation.

  • These simulation sessions offer hands-on training with haptic models provided by Simulare Medical and include video surgery, live lecture, and mentoring by Faculty Speakers.
  • Each session is limited to 50 participants.
  • Each participant will have the use of a simulation kit during the session (includes surgical instruments, Dingman retractor, sutures, marking pen, headlight & other needed supplies).
