Abstract
Rapid development of medical field, expanding knowledge base and new technologies require continuing medical education to achieve life long learning and to keep the surgeons up to date. Consequently, specific training is necessary to guarantee qualification of the surgeons. To overcome the current drawbacks of traditional training systems (on-the-job training, plastic models etc.) for laparoscopy/hysteroscopy an intelligent adaptable training environment has been realised using Virtual Reality (VR), Multimedia (MM) technology, and Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS).
