  Purpose

I Hypothesis:

  1. Simulation-based training in maximal barrier precaution technique during central venous catheter (CVC) placement is superior to general videotape-based training
  2. Baseline performance in maximal barrier precaution technique of PGY 2 and 3 Medical residents, certified in CVC placement, is poor
  3. PGY 2 and 3 medical residents have low self-perceived confidence in mastering maximal barrier precaution technique during central venous catheter (CVC) placement
  4. PGY 2 and 3 medical residents undergoing simulation-based training in maximal barrier precaution technique during central venous catheter (CVC) placement have good recall after 3 months
