Continuing Medical Education
The Duke Center for Surgical Innovation
The Duke Center for Surgical Innovation is dedicated to advancing education through research, collaboration, and state-of-the-art technology. The center provides hands-on training in innovative techniques in the field of minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
Surgical Education and Activities Lab
Duke Surgery opened the Surgical Education and Activities Lab (SEAL) in 2005 to train residents, fellows, medical students, and faculty on simulation equipment in a risk-free environment to advance medical education and improve patient safety.
Doctor of Medicine Program
In the Doctor of Medicine Program, the surgery core course is given during the second year and consists of an eight-week clinical clerkship. Surgery provides six rotations annually with approximately 17 students per rotation—training 102 medical students annually.
The primary goal of this course is the presentation of concepts and principles that characterize the disciplines of surgery.
