Didactic Curriculum

Supplemental to clinical curriculum the program offers a formal didactic series:

  • Residency didactics include weekly half-days of protected time for resident and faculty lectures, case presentations, textbook review and exam question discussion. A cadaver lab and simulation center are used for procedural training. Topics are based on the Surgical CORE (SCORE) curriculum of the American College of Surgeons didactic model. There are also weekly ACS online readings and quizzes (annual website subscription provided).
  • Each week, residents will participate in a Morbidity and Mortality conference, as well as a monthly Journal Club to discuss current medical literature and articles.
  • Research is required during the five-year residency, with oversight and support provided by an academic research coordinator.
