Continuing Surgical Education

Preceptor Program for New Surgical Procedures

The UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology developed the CSEP Preceptor Program in 2008, as an important means to support the lifelong learning of our faculty members, which is essential to optimizing the surgical education of our postgraduate learners, and improves the care of women in British Columbia. The Department strives to support its faculty members who are trying to acquire new surgical skills that have proven efficacy and safety as this ultimately supports our educational mission and leads to better patient care.

Towards this end, the Preceptor Program provides a process to allow practicing surgeons to pursue cases with a preceptor surgeon while developing new competencies, until they have developed independence in the entrustable professional activity. Please refer to the Program Description and supporting documents for more information.
