The BioSkills Lab, equipped with nine integrated surgical bays and advanced technology, is an ideal venue for complex, collaborative training for healthcare professionals to develop or perfect new surgical techniques. Medical device manufacturers can teach established procedures or conduct preclinical product development research focus groups to directly observe products in use, arming them with crucial data for device improvement.


Instruction during fully interactive, hands-on workshops involving simulated models, cadaveric, or animate tissues allows for consistency and reproducibility while providing a framework for evaluation of techniques, procedures and devices. There’s no need to tie up precious resources in high-cost and high-demand hospital and surgical centers, or to deliver courses in makeshift venues. Our facilities provide convenient, cost-effective and high-quality solutions for training and product development testing. And when it comes to perfecting skills, there’s no substitute for practicing in the most realistic environment possible.

Evidence-based practice combined with advanced surgical techniques significantly raises the competency of healthcare professionals and the quality of patient outcomes.
