Laparoscopic intra-corporeal knot tying (LICK). Group learning curves. Participants of all groups performed 33 consecutive repetitions (R0–R32) of LICK. Phase 1 (P1): 1 repetition (T 1). Phase 2 (P2): no repetitions (training of basic tasks). Phase 3 (P3): 1 repetition (T 2). Phase 4 (P4): 30 repetitions (LICK training). Phase 5 (P5): 1 repetition (T 3). The scores were plotted, and group learning curves were fitted to a one-phase exponential decay model
