• Provide a systematic approach to teaching skills (nested skills set teaching and essential skills lists)
• Provide a context and create enthusiasm for basic and theoretical knowledge
• Allow development of skills with feedback from experts
• Create opportunities for self-learning and dedicated skills practice using live animals and simulation
