Residents learn essential skills in 2022 Basic Skills Boot Camp

Resident learning on a simulator

The 2022 Basic Skills Boot Camp prepared our intern class for the challenges of their first clinical year of residency through a dedicated week of lectures and simulation training.

Over five days from June 6-10, residents received instruction on topics such as anesthesiology measurements and checks, emergency medicine, airway management intubation and extubation, procedural practice, and quality and safety.

The week included a mix of lectures, simulation sessions, and operating room instruction to equip residents with the skills and knowledge they need to face challenges in the operating room. The week allows residents a valuable opportunity to master the basics and learn foundational concepts. By honing their skills in a low-risk environment, residents are well equipped to respond to crises in high-risk environments.
