Surgery residency is more than just operative skills. At Indiana University School of Medicine, general surgery residents receive service specific, multidisciplinary and department-wide conferences at standardized times throughout the week. In addition to weekly didactic learning sessions, the Department of Surgery has a comprehensive skills curriculum housed in the Skills and Simulation Centers.
The Surgical Skills Center was formally accredited in the summer of 2019 by the American College of Surgeon as a Comprehensive Education Institute. These educational opportunities are essential to the overall growth, development and training of a safe and competent surgeon.
