Program Description
Brown Science Library        2. BASIC SCIENCE

The goal of pediatric surgery residency training is to ensure development of future outstanding leaders in academic or community pediatric surgery. It is our intention that the pediatric surgical residents gain experience as well to the use of statistical analysis, methods in scientific writing, biomedical ethics, educational techniques, outcome analysis and preparation of grants for peer review. The didactic basic science curriculum is a core curriculum lecture series provided by basic science medical faculty, the Department of Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery. This lecture series teaches the Resident principles that are the foundations of current clinical practice. Furthermore, this is the fund of knowledge necessary for the resident to begin to ask questions about the evidence for clinical and surgical decisions. From this point they can formulate hypotheses to investigative new directions in pediatric surgical science.

The basic science program has been carefully defined to coincide with the curriculum outline accepted by the Association of Pediatric Surgery Program Directors. It is further structured to cover all components outlined by the American Board of Surgery. The lecture series presented by the medical faculty and residents is organized administratively by the Program Director, Dr. Muratore, in partnership with the pediatric surgery resident. Each rotation, the residents, including the pediatric residents who rotate on our service are required to present at the lecture series. A significant emphasis on cellular and molecular development has been infused into the program through the Program in Fetal Medicine. This has drawn a national and international exposure to the basic science of all the multidisciplinary fields represented within the Program.
