CSTAR fellows are passionate about surgical education research. In this fellowship, trainees will gain the ability to become independent surgical education investigators by intensive mentorship by CSTAR faculty and project-based learning on high-impact research projects.
Our researchers combine the best in traditional educational work (assessment, curriculum development, recruitment, leadership development, and faculty development) as well as several new, cross-disciplinary programs that:
- Bridge the gap between surgical education research and health services research
- Address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in surgical education
- Apply improvement science methodologies to develop new national evidence-based standards for surgical training
