In addition to monthly sessions for residents, the center also provides support for third- and fourth-year medical student surgical clerkships, continued medical education programs offering advanced surgical techniques in all surgical disciplines.
National surgical initiatives:
- Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)
- Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET)
- Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM)
All initiatives are accredited by the American College of Surgeons and are offered as part of the skills curriculum at no cost to the resident. The IU SSC is a vital component of the Department of Surgery’s education program that is continually advancing to meet the needs of modern surgical training.
