In many medical domains simulators are used to learn medical skills. In echocardiography this is usually done by a one-day training session. The aim of this study was to find the best method for optimizing the long-term performance of a procedural skill so that the effect of the training session is maximized. In an attempt to maximize long-term retention the testing effect were used. Two research questions were answered: "Can the testing effect be generalised to procedural skills?" and "Can long-term retention of procedural skills be enhanced when improving declarative knowledge using the testing effect?". Participants in the study received a training session and after 4 weeks they either performed a declarative test, a procedural test or both. 15 weeks after that, participants performed a final declarative and procedural test. Final performance on the procedural test was measured by evaluating screenshots of the echo's participants made. Results show no significant result of the testing effect on procedural skills. Also no effect of declarative knowledge on procedural skill performance is found.
