Exstensive educational opportunities
Simulation Stanford is a leader in medical simulation, being the home of the first medical simulation program. Our residency leadership has just secured increased funding for more simulation which we are very excited about.
High fidelity adult and pediatric simulators create a very realistic educational experience.
Simulation days spread throughout the curriculum.
Cadaver labs: Become comfortable with thoracostomy tubes/thoracotomies, central lines, lumbar punctures, NG tubes, and catheters before having to do them on real patients.
Airway lab: Practice fiberoptic intubations, glide scope, bougie, lighted stylet, intubating LMA and other airway devices.
Senior directed curriculum: once a month conferences dedicated for the R3’s that focus on timely topics such as job search, financial planning, billing, and practice management
2 week block in intern year devoted to developing Ultrasound skills.
Journal Club: Once a month we go keep up to date on the literature through informal and informative discussions at an attending’s house or restaurant. Dr. Garmel always manages to pick articles that will somehow change our practice. Joint journal clubs with surgery, internal medicine and pediatrics are highlights.
