Surgical Education Lab

The “Surgical Education Lab” under Drs. Yoo, Oliveira, and Longo enables our residents to take a scholarly pedagogical approach to surgical education. One lab resident each year is sponsored to pursue their Master of Health Sciences degree in Medical Education. This rigorous 2-year program equips our residents with expertise in curriculum development, assessment techniques, and the skills to perform qualitative and quantitative evaluations of training initiatives. Other residents outside the Masters track are also encouraged to participate in scholarly projects in the field of education. Our lab members have worked on a variety of topics:

  • Residents as Educators curriculum
  • On-the-go formative feedback tools
  • Informed consent curriculum
  • Resident education on responsible opioid prescribing practices
  • Robotic surgery training program
  • Topics regarding the clinical learning environment
