Video Games Help Save Lives!!

February 20, 2007

The Trauma Center games might be on to something… according to this article, surgeons who play video games are actually better surgeons.

“Video game skills translated into higher scores on a day-and-half-long surgical
skills test, and the correlation was much higher than the surgeon’s length of
training or prior experience in laparoscopic surgery, the study said.”

I’m surprised there’s not more Doogie Howsers running around out there…
