Surgery Core Curriculum

The Surgery Core Curriculum is a dynamic interactive experience for Baystate residents. Content is derived from the SCORE (Surgical Council on Resident Education) curriculum and is updated regularly to keep step with advances in surgical knowledge and technology. Scheduled core curriculum sessions are conducted during protected education time and coupled with an extensive process of testing of knowledge to augment residents’ self-directed learning efforts.
