It has been a pleasure getting to know this group of bright and motivated students as they head into the last few weeks of the program. The interns have been busy! In addition to ample hands on labs in the PSSI, operating room experiences and clinical shadowing they have been productive researchers working on a variety of projects. They also learned about sterile technique, anesthesia and robotic surgery from our Providence Portland Medical Center Operating Room partners and have had weekly lectures from expert surgeons in the fields of foregut, colorectal, endocrine, hernia, thoracic and hepatobiliary surgery. We look forward to the upcoming hands-on electrosurgery laboratory and “Future of Surgery” lecture by Founder and President Dr Lee Swanstrom followed that night by the certificate ceremony at the 7th Annual FSIE Summer Celebration! Thanks to Co-Direcor Walaa Abdelmoaty, SIM lab coordinator Rosen Ilchev, student coordinator Matt Glasgow, administrator Lisa Leeth and the entire Innovations Team for making this internship program such a success!
