This thesis involves the development of a robotic surgical simulator (RoSS) for the daVinci surgical system (DVSS) increasing the size of the psychomotor skill set and adding a module for the improvement of cognitive skills. This thesis deals with the redesign of the existing RoSS system with a more compact frame and a newly designed wrist that preserves the kinesthetics of working on the actual system. The cognitive skill sets developed are basic skill builders of anatomy identification and bleeding control.
