« View all News items
The Penn Department of Surgery has been instrumental in the development of simulation-based training opportunities for its residents, medical students and nursing staff. The Department facilitates training through the use of a state of the art, dedicated 22,000 square foot simulation center. This was first accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 Simulation Center in June 2008, and by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare in 2010.
The Surgical Education Fellowship in the Department of Surgery is a 1-2 year program commencing in July 2013, designed to develop future leaders and train scholars in surgical education. The Fellow will gain first-hand expertise with regard to simulated patient scenarios, technical skills training (including virtual reality and animal trainers) and team training. A significant component of the Fellowship is based upon academic research, within the areas of surgical education, skills assessment and outcomes analysis. The applicant will be also able to register for a Masters in Medical Education degree.
No application review and invitation for a formal interview will be made unless the application is completed by March 8, 2013. This deadline is firm.
