Background: Effective cardiothoracic surgical training requires an emphasis on education through timely feedback and constructive criticism. Aims: Review of the implementation of the System for Improving and Measuring Procedural Learning application within a cardiothoracic surgical training program. Materials & Methods: Here, we review a report by Bergquist et al. to the Journal of Cardiac Surgery detailing their implementation of the System for Improving and Measuring Procedural Learning application. Conclusion: It is feasible for the SIMPL application to be implemented with acceptable use in a cardiothoracic training program.
