Junior Resident SCORE Curriculum

This conference will replace surgery 101& 201, and will meet on both Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 7AM to 8 AM.  Half of the PGY-1 and 2 residents will meet each day, based on the service that you are currently assigned to.  Each week the group will review the modules assigned for the This Week in Score Curriculum (TWIS).  With each TWIS assignment the all residents will be expected to:

  • Complete the quiz associated with the weekly assignment in advance
  • Review the modules assigned with particular focus on the two bolded modules and any italicized modules on the calendar below
  • Come to class prepared to discuss the conference prep questions in class

Each week two of the four PGY-2s in each group will lead the discussion of the conference prep questions, one person responsible for each of the highlighted modules.  A faculty member will be present to moderate the discussion.

You will be expected to sign out your clinical work to you other teammates who are not attending conference and this will represent true protected time.  Residents rotating on non-Department of Surgery rotations are not required to attend this conference, but are encouraged to attend.  All other PGY 1&2 residents and PA residents are required to attend conference.

The assignments for the Wednesday and Thursday groups are as follows:
