   Introductory course on sterile technique, suturing, hand-ties, local anesthetic administration 53 (50)
Number of participants who feel simulation training should be mandatory 92 (87)
Simulator training for these procedures should be made mandatory  
   Central venous catheterization 45 (42)
   Ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization 42 (40)
