I have always been interested in virtual reality and in the development of new technologies that allow young surgeons to gradually acquire new skills, without subjecting the patient to errors dictated by a lack of experience. With the reduction of working hours for doctors in training and the increase in medical-legal cases, we are witnessing a reduction in exposure to surgical cases. This translates into fewer opportunities not only to assist but also to be directly involved as the first operators in the operating room. The primary task of those personally involved in the training of neurosurgeons is to identify new strategies to train a generation that is at least as well-equipped as the previous one. 3D printed models from real cases would make a fundamental contribution to the training of neurosurgeons, allowing current and future generations to acquire surgical skills and improve technical skills in a protected environment where a mistake would not have devastating consequences, but which would instead constitute a constructive experience to be critically analyzed.
