Surgical simulation is an effective tool used to teach many of the fundamental skills required to be a surgeon. Simulation‐based education with directed practice in surgical training allows repeated practice in an environment to learn surgical skills, which do not cause harm to patients. There are several simulators developed for endoscopic sinus surgery training. Some simulators have undergone validation studies with regard to developing skills necessary to perform endoscopic sinus surgery. This book chapter will review the currently available sinus surgery simulators that have undergone validation and evaluate their potential role in surgical training.
