At the recent SEA Fall Meeting in Chicago, our committee was privileged to have three resident FAER scholars at our roundtable session. They brought an amazing perspective of the desire to emphasize intraoperative teaching as part of the overall learning opportunities, aside from regular didactics. We are exploring options to add more content to the website to help faculty with ideas for intraoperative teaching.
FAER scholars later attended a workshop aimed at identifying core values and academic career paths, as well as seeking and identifying mentorship at various stages. This workshop was hosted by our committee leadership, Dr. Ku and Dr. Alarcon.
We are partnering with the Simulation committee to design a workshop for the Spring Meeting on training faculty to help prepare residents for the upcoming OSCE component of the new applied exam of the ABA. Our Committee also submitted some of the featured monthly SEA Question of the Month (SEA-Q).
We welcome at our morning roundtable at each meeting those interested in promoting resident education and sharing ideas and enthusiasm. See you in the Spring!
