Medical students 'raised on screens lack skills for surgery'
New medical students have spent so much time on screens that they lack vital practical skills necessary to conduct life-saving operations, a leading surgeon has warned.

Roger Kneebone, professor of surgical education at Imperial College London, said that a decline in hands-on creative subjects at school and practical hobbies at home means that students often do not have a basic understanding of the physical world.

Backing a campaign by educational thinktank the Edge Foundation to encourage more creative subjects in the national curriculum, Kneebone said spending hours engaged in virtual worlds was no substitute for experience in the real world. ...

Meddle not with him who is given to change.

It is foolish to put your confidence in a man.

This sounds like the usual complaint from old-timers about "kids these days." Well things weren't so great while I was young, either; many of my peers were dissolute fools.

Besides, doctors *need* screen skills since they're so common now in hospitals and medical practices.

As usual, the "National Curriculum" is expected to solve all problems. Educators blather about diversity, yet education monopolized by gov't guarantees that if their pedagogy is wrong, everybody suffers, not just some.

I would agree with that...

I think they were talking about non robotic surgery. The stuff like sewing a skin graft, fixing a broken arm, etc. Honestly I would be nervous to get a young person to do a surgery like that. Might wake up with your foot stitched to yer head!😱😱😱😷😷😷

Kneebone does not sound like a real name to me, how about with you? And then the study is sponsored by a group trying to promote its 'real world' activity. Of course, they will not find any result like the previous commenter here said, that younger doctors with video game experience are better able to operate computer-operated surgical machinery.
There may be other reasons to promote hobbies at home and 'real-world' experience, but even that makes me wonder, when I see people walking on the street in the Real World, focused not on walking or their Real World environment, but rather their smartphones!
I guess the only way to 'get back' to this Real World is to move to an area that has no smartphone connectivity. Much of the Florida Panhandle experienced this after Hurricane Michael knocked down all their phone lines and cell phone towers. I wonder if GPS worked there.

Ouch, just sprained a thumb typing this. ;-)

If people walked around my place like they do most places, with their eyes on their phones, they would either get snakebit or step in an armadillo burrow and break their legs. And you’re right, JAG; they don’t know how to do anything except use their thumbs.

I see this as a problem as well. The level of understanding the physical world is lower than ever. Just look at the young people. Give them any type of physical thing to do and they can't figure it out. Very bad case...
