Course Overview

The Goodman Surgical Education Center at Stanford

This two-day postgraduate course provides surgeons, educators, and administrators behind-the-scenes access to the Stanford Department of Surgery Education Institute, a Comprehensive American College of Surgeons-Accredited Educational Institute (ACS-AEI). The first day will be held at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley, and will feature presentations and dynamic panels from a range of surgical educators demonstrating new and innovative ways to integrate simulation into surgical training. Exhibitors will also be on hand during breaks to display new technology for skills labs and simulation centers. 

The second day of the course will be held on Stanford’s campus at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, and will feature interactive games and a hands-on workshop on simulation-based interprofessional education. The session will conclude with a scavenger hunt of Stanford’s simulation centers and skills laboratories, giving participants a unique behind-the-scenes view of this pioneer in simulation-based learning.
