The Academy for Surgical Coaching team recently published two articles for the American College of Surgeons (ACS) in February 2021. These publications highlight the significance of addressing surgeons’ continuing professional development even during the Covid-19 pandemic. Both emphasize the unique opportunity that the pandemic presents in revamping performance improvement efforts for practicing surgeons by embracing high-quality virtual learning strategies.
The ACS Women in Surgery Committee invited Caprice Greenberg, MD, MPH, president of the Academy for Surgical Coaching, to deliver the Olga M. Jonasson, MD, Lecture at Clinical Congress 2020. Read the edited transcript of her scintillating presentation, entitled “Never let a good crisis go to waste: Continuous professional development and COVID-19,” in the ACS Bulletin.
Additionally, our team collaborated to publish a new article in the ACS Resources in Surgical Education (RISE) series. Jason Pradarelli, MD, MS, Sudha Pavuluri Quamme, MD, MS, and Caprice Greenberg, MD, MPH, explore the practical aspects of assessing and improving surgical performance virtually. Read how we can improve continuing professional development for surgeons in the ACS RISE article.
