Due to the influx of COVID-19 patients overwhelming hospital ICU capacity, many surgery departments are canceling/rescheduling elective surgery procedures to relieve stress on hospital infrastructure, health care workers, and supplies. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has taken the lead on this and issued directives for hospitals and surgeons to follow:
As a result of these changes, many surgery residents are taking on different roles at their institutions to support the efforts of emergency, ICU, and anesthesiology departments to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients. To ensure that residents are keeping up with their surgery residency requirements during this challenging time, many will be turning to online resources like AccessSurgery.
To support this effort, we have put together the attached document that maps content on AccessSurgery to most clinical rotations, core surgical subspecialties, and surgery clerkship.
