General Surgery Residency Courses
All FAU General Surgery residents will complete a comprehensive set of standardized courses and online modules, designed to complement the surgical curriculum and enhance their patient care and procedural skills. These courses include:
The AHA BLS course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. The AHA ACLS course builds on that knowledge to enhance the resident’s skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies; the course uses a web-based, self-paced instructional program and eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings and apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development. After completing the cognitive portion of the course, students practice and test their skills with an AHA Instructor or on a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system, and assess their knowledge in written and practical tests.
