Simulation

The goal of our simulation program is to provide an environment where residents, and practicing physicians can learn and advance their technical skills prior to performing procedures on a patient. We follow the American College of Surgeons and the Association of Program Directors in Surgery skills curriculum. We will have a skills area that is accessible to the residents 24/7. Phase 1 includes 20 modules that address basic surgical skills. Phase 2 includes 15 modules that address advanced skills and procedures, and Phase 3 includes 10 modules that address team-based skills. We will have low fidelity and high fidelity simulators. Our curriculum will assure success with the ACS endorsed Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery Skills curriculum, as well as the newly endorsed Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery by SAGES.
