Cadaver Surgical Simulation 2014


For the second year in a row residents and several attendings were able to spend some time dissecting cadavers and practicing surgical approaches. A variety of approaches were performed and completed by all residents involved. This allowed for practicing various osteotomies and adaptation of various plating techniques.

Anesthesia Emergency Drill Simulations


Monthly emergency simulations at Thomas Jefferson University Simulation Center. The residents are presented with common and uncommon anesthesia emergencies allowing them to practice their responses and management of these situations. Each resident gets the chance to run several scenarios and get feedback on what they did well and what they need to improve on.
