Training is mainly time-based in most fields including anesthesiology. Different individuals learn at different rates; time-based learning does not account for individual differences and can short-change individuals needing more time. Conversely, mastery training ends when the individual learner has achieved mastery (by reaching a minimum passing standard, MPS) irrespective of the time needed to reach mastery. Mastery training can thus be demanding of the instructor’s time and impractical for busy clinicians as an open-ended time commitment.
We describe mastery training in central venous access on a simulator as a concrete example of mastery training using a virtual coach.
