Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To assess reactions by program directors (PDs) to a preview of a scenario from the Fundamentals of Surgery Curriculum (FSC), which is a case-based interactive curriculum developed by the American College of Surgeons's (ACS) Division of Education and designed to be delivered online to first-year (PGY-1) surgical residents. DESIGN: After previewing a scenario, each PD completed a questionnaire requesting age and ratings of comfort using computers, the scenario's utility in addressing 9 educational goals (eg, provides a solid foundation for future learning), and 6 separate features of the scenario (eg, ease of use and feasibility). All ratings were based on a 1-9 scale. For items related to educational goals, ratings were anchored: 1-3 = poor/needs revision; 4-6 = adequate/as good as current methods; 7-9 = excellent/superior to current methods. Informal discussions were also conducted and comments were collected. SETTING: October 2007 ACS Clinical Congress. PARTICIPANTS: In all, 31 PDs participated in the study. RESULTS: Most PDs perceived that the scenario addressed 8 of the 9 educational goals in a manner superior to current methods [eg, provides a solid foundation for future learning (97%), challenges residents (90%), and delivers content consistent with current practices and/or evidence (90%)]. The mean ratings of all scenario features were 7 or greater on the 9-point scale. CONCLUSION: Most PDs reacted very positively to a preview of FSC perceiving that it can address several important educational goals in a manner superior to existing methods. Comments from PDs suggest a high level of interest in incorporating FSC into their residency programs as well as participating in a coordinated multi-institutional evaluation project. The results provide baseline data concerning PD expectations of the utility of FSC that will help to guide and evaluate further developments and applications of this curriculum.
