This paper describes the design and development of a training system for minimally invasive surgery skills in the field of otolaryngology. The main purpose of the system is for the surgical residents to gain experience and practice. In order to provide the surgeon a practical interaction environment, training modules and an evaluation methodology are proposed. The methodology consists of a series of tasks which help to develop and evaluate the surgeon skills based on precision and time. A custom MATLAB code records and evaluates surgeon's performance on each task, giving the resident the chance of following a trend of progress.
