We hypothesize that the addition of video playback will lead to a greater improvement in laparoscopic technique when compared to verbal feedback alone. Participants were randomized to either verbal feedback only (control) or verbal feedback and watching their video recording (intervention). Each participant completed the five FLS exercises using a laparoscopic box trainer while being observed by the faculty evaluator, timed, and video recorded. Baseline Global Operative Assessment of Laparoscopic Skills (GOALS) assessment was completed by participants and faculty evaluator immediately after verbal feedback was given. Following time for the intervention the participant repeated the FLS exercises while being timed and, following completion was scored again by faculty and self-scored using the GOALS assessment. In addition, all participants also completed a non-validated pre- and post-test survey to gauge their comfort with laparoscopic skills and provide feedback on video playback as an educational tool.
