ACS-AEI Postgraduate Course focuses on simulation in surgical education

Register by September 1 for the ninth Annual American College of Surgeons Accredited Education Institutes (ACS-AEI) Postgraduate Course, Perfect Practice Makes Perfect, September 16−17, at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Boston, MA.

The first day of the course will take place at the Westin Copley Place Hotel and will feature presentations from BIDMC and Harvard Medical School faculty on a variety of timely, simulation-based education topics, including debriefing techniques, designing simulation scenarios, instituting a surgery boot camp, using simulation for team training in the operating room (OR), and becoming familiar with the ACS/Association for Surgical Education Medical Student Simulation-Based Surgical Skills Curriculum. The second day of the course, at the Carl J. Shapiro Skills Center at BIDMC, will feature interactive workshops on creating immersive teaching environments; developing low-cost, high-fidelity simulation models; and simulating a mock OR crisis.

In addition, participants will have ample opportunities to network with other AEI representatives and ACS-AEI program staff. The ACS-AEIs are designed to educate and train practicing surgeons, surgical residents, medical students, and members of the surgical team using simulation-based education.

Visit the ACS website to view the agenda, register for the course, and reserve a hotel room at a special rate.
