Resident education and intellectual development are principal goals of the program. Residents are provided with formal didactics, guidance, and resources for independent and group learning. On a weekly basis, multiple scheduled teaching sessions encourage critical thinking and discussions with faculty. In response to COVID-19, we have also developed a weekly Zoom curriculum featuring talks by residents and faculty members, including special “How I Do It” sessions on operative anatomy.
