Congratulations to Our Surgical Residency Program

Did you know that our surgical residency program has been winning regional and national awards by using their creativity and parts of the local home improvement store? Congratulations to  Leandra Jelinek, DO; Anthony Chen, DO; Matthew Deere, DO; and  Mark Jones, DO (Program Director) for winning First Place Poster Presentation at the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons Annual Clinical Assembly in Atlanta, Georgia. The Poster was titled: Fabrication and Validation of a Cost-Effective Upper Endoscopy Simulator.  This device is a cost-effective method for simulating live upper endoscopies and is appropriate for use in Fundamentals in Endoscopic Surgery Training. It provides a similar experience to live EGD's and gives inexperienced endoscopists the ability to gain skins in endoscop manipulation and maneuvering.
