The new year had signaled a new era of education at the department of surgery at Stanford and therefore at the Goodman Surgical Education Center. Excitement is abound as we embark on more adventures to innovate and create as we teach and learn.
Jim Korndorffer joins us as the Vice Chair of Education for the Department of Surgery and has already made us more thoughtful as we look forward to reworking the core course and skills curriculum for 2018-2019. Carla Pugh is in the process of moving her simulator lab to Stanford we are excited to build our education team with these two pillars of surgical education nationally.
Drs. Lin, Berekneyei Merrell, Lee, Hasty, along with Paloma Marin Nevarez, Sarah Miller, and Wendy Qiu are amazing and their projects have all been accepted for Surgical Education Week for Austin in May 2018:

And the OR Interprofessional Communication Education Program in Teamwork (InterCEPT) will be giving a workshop on their Interprofessional in-situ OR simulation program with the Goodman Team (Brittany, Kristen, Ed, Paloma, and Sarah), the OR education team (Sarah Hirx, Teresa Roman-Micek, and Mary Lou Jackson), the anesthesia team (Drs. Fanning, Goldhaber-Fiebert, Austin and Gaba) and the Risk Authority Team (Welle, Orquiza, Hall, and Mawer).
March brings us to more administrative help at the American College of Surgeons Education Institute Accredited Simulation Center of the Department of Surgery at Stanford that is the Goodman Surgical Education Center. Kristen Kayser has been leading us through our center’s growth and oversaw our successful reaccreditation of our fellowship by the ACS – EI. Jenirose Santos joins Kristen and I on the administrative team for the Goodman.
We are eagaly anticipating the arrival of our newest Surgical Education Fellow, Tiffany Anderson from the University Of Florida in Gainesville in July.
As we go into the Fall of 2018, we continue to innovate the teaching and learning as well as the educational environments for those training to be doctors and surgeons at Stanford. Growth is constant and our commitment to the mindful exploration of learning is reaching an exciting pace and breadth.
