    Training Challenge

The Global Surgical Training Challenge addresses the need for lower cost simulation-based surgical training through the creation of new open source surgical training modules.

The Challenge is a contest designed to find innovative ways to develop lower cost, validated, simulation-based surgical training. We are calling upon innovators to develop surgical training modules that can be used in low-resource settings to help teach practitioners surgical procedures and techniques.

The Challenge consists of three phases spread over 2 years, with a purse of $5 million. The first phase will be Discovery Awards of up to $200,000 for each team in December 2020 to support prototype development.
