Surgical Foundations

 

Welcome to our PGY 1 residents! For the PGY 2 residents, congratulations on the successful completion of your first year of surgical training and we look forward to this final year of Surgical Foundations. The Surgical Foundations Program provides surgical residents from Cardiac Surgery, General Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Plastic Surgery, Urology and Vascular Surgery with the knowledge and skills to allow residents to excel as a senior surgical resident.

Acquisition of this knowledge and skill set occurs through experience on clinical rotations (including critical care and trauma), seminars, technical skills labs and the CRASH course. The CRASH course occurs in block 4 of the PGY 1 year and is an intensive 4 weeks which includes ATLS, the Fundamental of Critical Care Support course, the POEM course (perioperative emergency management), training in Surgical Residents as Teachers as well as seminars covering research and evidence based medicine. PGY 2 residents participate in selected aspects of CRASH as well as have the opportunity to assist the PGY 1 residents in skills labs.

UBC Surgery residents have free and confidential access to the Resident Wellness Office

At the successful completion of your Surgical Foundation training you will have the knowledge, experience and skills to transition into your role as senior surgical residents. You will also be equipped to continue to learn and adapt in new environments as well as in the ever-changing field of surgery.

I wish you all the best in the year ahead. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Take care and enjoy,
Dr. Sonia Butterworth
Program Director, Surgical Foundations, UBC
