The Penn Department of Surgery has been instrumental in the development of simulation-based training opportunities for its residents, medical students and nursing staff. The Department facilitates training through the use of a state of the art, dedicated 22,000 square foot simulation center. This was first accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 Simulation Center in June 2008, and by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare in 2010.
The Measey Surgical Education Fellowship in the Department of Surgery is a 2 year program commencing in July 2015, designed to develop future leaders and train scholars in surgical education. The fellow will gain first-hand expertise with regard to curriculum development and teaching. A significant component of the Fellowship is based upon academic research, within the areas of surgical education, surgical outcomes and quality of care. The applicant will be required to complete both a certificate program in clinical research and medical education.
