The Surgery Simulation curriculum consists of sessions focused on 1) skills and task training, 2) team-based and situational training, 3) standardized courses [see above], and 4) mock oral examinations, Surgery residents attend the SIM center sessions in small groups as scheduled and also have the opportunity to practice their skills independently; for more information, please click the link
The surgical residents will complete a comprehensive set of standardized courses geared to augment their clinical skills. The list of courses include BLS, ACLS, ATLS, FAST ASSET, ATOM, CRIT, CITI, FLS, FCCM, FES, US for Surgeons, Radiation & Sedation Safety, and Airway Management; for a table of the schedule, please click the link ,
It is essential that each resident maintains a disciplined and well organized self-study regimen. Our comprehensive, multi-faceted Surgery residency curriculum is meant to augment the resident’s self-study efforts, to provide insight from experts in the field, and give the residents ample opportunity to practice their skills.
Passing both the written and oral examination is one of the major capstones at the end of residency and a prerequisite to employment in most practice settings today; to help the residents gain the skills to do well and assess their knowledge on a regular basis, the program conducts 1) monthly core curriculum [board-/ABSITE-level MCQ] tests; 2) regular mock-oral examinations, and 3) the residents participate in the annual ABSITE examination.
