The ACS Committee on Medical Student Education’s medical student-led Student Resource Task Force has developed modules, with a specific focus on surgery, to address some of the questions that typically arise during medical school. The content is downloadable and available at no cost. The modules may be used as a self-directed instructional exercise or as part of a group discussion at a Surgery Interest Group meeting.
Module 3: Anatomy of the Operating Room
Module 4: Commonly Used Surgical Instruments
Module 5: What to Carry in Your White Coat on Surgery Rounds—Print this out, laminate it, and use it as a checklist
Module 6: A Medical Student's Guide to Advocacy
Module 7: Surgical Documentation Primer
Module 8: Feedback in the OR
