Although previous chapters indicated the potential and benefits of training arthroscopic skills in simulated environments, training needs to be continued in the operating room to achieve the necessary proficiency. Based on the theory on learning strategies in Chap.4, it is posed that if residents indeed acquire the basic skills before they enter the operating room, the focus in the operating room can be on more complex tasks. This requires the formulation of guidelines that determine the level that qualifies proficiency. For the actual cases in the operating room, this is a difficult task as the level of complexity of the procedure plays an important role, and proficiency is not necessarily defined as the summation of several part-task skills, but rather requires a holistic approach.
