The Department of Surgery Measey Surgical Skills Suite is a 1400 square foot state of the art facility dedicated to surgical resident skills training. The Measey Suite is located in the Penn Medicine Clinical Simulation Center at Penn Medicine Rittenhouse and opened July 2008.
Surgical Skills trianing allows junior residents to improve their technical and patient management skills. The acquisition of a solid technical basis of fundamental skills through dedicated skills courses will enhance the confidence level of junior surgical residents in clinical practice and in the operating room. Decision making, team interactions and communication skills, practiced in an open and error prone environment, will improve complex and time critical patient care.
