    ObjectiveThoracotomy is an acute, time-sensitive procedure. Simulation-based education provides a safe-learning platform to learn these techniques under close supervision.MethodsWe used the spiral model and concepts of functional fidelity to guide the evolutionary design and fabrication of a hybrid thoracotomy simulator.ResultsThis model simulates a clamshell thoracotomy that physically integrates with bespoke manikins and adds a high-fidelity technical skills element to immersive team-based simulation training.ConclusionsWe describe the creation of a thoracotomy simulation model that allows trainees to practice these techniques in a safe-learning environment.© 2024 The Authors.
