Intracorporeal suture (ICS) is regarded today as a mandatory element, which the surgeon must possess before the development of laparoscopic surgery in the operating room. At the Department of Surgery No. 1 MSMSU proposed a simulation method of effective teaching ICS on box simulators. The testing method was attended by 255 students: students of medical universities, interns, residents, and practicing surgeons. Only 20 % of doctors have shown the necessary level of knowledge of manual skills to start learning the art of ICS. All students, interns, residents, and 80 % of physicians had to start training with basic exercises unit. During testing, the proposed method of separate training of ICS has demonstrated high performance, availability, and economic benefits.
