Project: Research project

Project Details


To better establish its generalizabilty with regards to these potential benefits we propose to work with the ABS to study SIMPL in a multicenter study involving 10 general surgery residency training programs with the goal of answering the following questions. 1) What level of operative autonomy is achieved by general surgery residents by the end of their residency training with SCORE-defined essential common and essential uncommon procedures? 2) For specific surgical procedures, what is the relationship between the number of procedures the resident participated in (i.e. logged) and the level of operative autonomy they achieved? 3) What levels of compliance and timeliness can be achieved with SIMPL at multiple different programs?
