This study examines whether technical skills leamed on a bench model are transferable to the human cadaver model.
Twenty-three first-year residents were randomly assigned to three groups receiving teaching on six procedures.
For each procedure, one group received training on a cadaver model, one received training on a bench model, and one learned independently from a prepared text.
Following training, all residents were assessed on their ability to perform the six procedures.
Repeated measures analysis of variance revealed a significant effect of training modality for both checklist scores (F2,44=3.49, P<0.05) and global scores (F2,44=7.48, P<0.01).
Post-hoc tests indicated that both bench and cadaver training were superior to text learning and that bench and cadaver training were equivalent.
Training on a bench model transfers well to the human model, suggesting strong potential for transfer to the operating room.
