Surgical Skills

The J. Roland Folse, MD Surgical Skills Center, in partnership with Memorial Medical Center, allows residents and physicians to stay on the leading edge of practice and technology by honing their skills in a simulated surgical environment. Using computer simulators and virtual reality technology, as well as specially designed procedure modules, learners get to practice a wide array of skills.

Almost every SIU residency program uses the skills center and follows a mandatory procedure curriculum throughout the year. Other users of the center include military personnel, nurse practitioners, emergency medical services employees, radiology students, surgical technician students and practicing physicians.
