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 Gynecology, Plastic Surgery, Urology and Vascular Surgery with the knowledge and skills to allow residents to excel as a senior surgical resident.

 JULY 1, 2018 SURGICAL FOUNDATIONS LAUNCHES COMPETENCY BY DESIGN (CBD):

That means for all the incoming PGY1’s, you will be the first residents to be trained in the new competency based Surgical Foundations Program!  I’ll cover the important aspects at orientation (July 4th) as well, there will be a resident presentation on CBD at the PGME Orientation on July 10th.  Anesthesia and Otolaryngology launched last year and in 2018, Emergency Medicine, Urology, Medical Oncology and Nephrology (both adult and peds) are launching as well.

 To find out more about CBD:

(the CBD module, is especially helpful)

Acquisition of the required knowledge and skill set occurs through experience on clinical rotations (including critical care and trauma), seminars, technical skills labs and the miniCRASH course and the CRASH course.

 The mini-CRASH occurs over 3 half days in July.  During each 4 hour session, you will rotate through 8 sim stations.  The stations will have PGY2’s as facilitators – you will be assessed on your performance on the stations. More detail will be provided on July 4th.

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), and 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 Foundations 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,
