There is an overwhelming body of literature supporting the use of simulation-based training when acquiring surgical skills but the effective implementation of simulation in the surgical curriculum is still a big challenge. Journal of Surgical Simulation would like to facilitate the sharing of experiences by introducing a new series called “Simulation Centres” that will allow faculty from centres around the world to publish detailed reports of their facilities. The Editors invite all leading teaching centres worldwide to submit a manuscript - influential simulation centres with a strong surgical focus and unique features that could inspire others in the simulation community will be prioritized.
