Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS)
The Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) education program can be used as either a teaching tool or as a graduation requirement (as mandated by the American Board of Surgery). Our program feels very strongly that FLS should be mastered early in residency such that you have the skills necessary to complete the basic laparoscopic procedures you will be performing your intern year. For this reason, FLS is completed in our residency during the first 6 months. We consider this to be a unique aspect of our program.
For more information on the FLS program, please check the main FLS Website.
