Residents Corner

As resident education continues to evolve, the SSAT strives to be at the forefront of training the next generation of surgeons and surgical leaders. There are a wide variety of opportunities available to surgical trainees to advance their surgical education and knowledge. Two examples are the SSAT Fellowship Fair and the SSAT Resident and Fellows Research Conference held at DDW every year. They have been a tremendous success with residents and prospective fellows. This Residents Corner is another way that SSAT is reaching out to residents and fellows, as the leadership recognizes the need to make surgical education more accessible to you. Residents Corner has a new layout, enhanced functionality and additional content:

  • Mentor of the Month presents interviews with guest surgeons that was formerly housed under Residents Corner Update
  • Our Video Library offers an advanced laparoscopic GI procedure
  • Resources will continue to be populated with articles of interest
  • The Image Gallery has its first contribution
  • Landmark Trials has the LOTUS Randomized Clinical Trial
It will also contain updates about upcoming meetings and their abstract deadlines. In the future, we hope to add a job board for open residency and fellowship positions. It addition, it will contain a link to the facebook SSAT Residents webpage and twitter account. We hope that the Residents Corner will not just provide excellent surgical education, but will also be a tool that the residents can use for future planning, professional development, and networking.
