The focus of the simulation curriculum is upon the junior level residents to learn the skills required to become competent surgeons. This includes surgical knowledge, technical and team-working skills, and behavioral attitudes to perform under sub-optimal conditions.

The fellow will be responsible for the modular simulation-based training program which utilizes a clinical pathway approach to train residents to manage pre-, intra- and post-operative surgical scenarios. The fellow will be involved in administration of the program, and in conjunction with surgical faculty, to teach concepts and skills in all areas of surgical practice.
