General Surgery Residency Program Resources

FLS TrainersOpportunities exist for residents to improve teaching abilities through the American College of Surgeons Course “Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course” which is designed to educate residents in the development of essential non-clinical skills that are critical to their success as senior level residents to be more effective teachers.

In addition to iPads, computer access for residents is available throughout the Department of Surgery.

Each resident receives electronic copies of Selected Readings in General Surgery and has access to online resources available through the Medical College of Wisconsin Library.

SCORE is the General Surgery Resident Curriculum Portal that delivers educational content aligned with the curriculum to general surgery residents and residency programs. 

The Residency Office maintains a list of favorite iPad applications as suggested by the residents.
