Continuing Surgical Education

Preceptor Program for New Surgical Procedures


The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology strives to support its faculty members who are trying to acquire new surgical skills that have proven efficacy and safety.  Ultimately this leads to better patient care and enhances our educational mission. This must be balanced by our fiduciary responsibility to patients through balancing the development of new surgical techniques with optimization of the quality of patient care. Towards this end, the Continuing Surgical Education Program (CSEP) provides a model of faculty development to assist faculty members pursuing privileges in new surgical techniques.
