Gamification Co. reports that Drexel University, where future surgeons train using several simulation techniques, are applying a fous not just on eficciency, but on mastery. When including gamification elements that allowed students to freely elect to continue improving after initial evaluations, positive results were evident:

Surgical trainees who overlearned with simulators reduced the learning curve, had a higher degree of mastery, retained the learned information longer, and preformed their procedures 20% faster than those who only trained until competence.
