Tags: podcast, Outreach, Education

Physicians and surgeons go through many years of training to hone their skills. But have you ever wondered what that training looks like? How do surgeons learn these extremely technical, hands-on skills in high-stakes situations?

Dr. Ken Kim, director of the gynecologic oncology fellowship and director of Robotic Surgical Education and Training at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, joined the Women's Healthcast after giving a special presentation to the UW Department of Ob-Gyn on surgical education. He discussed how to teach surgery, what makes for good surgical teaching and learning, and how surgeons keep up in an increasingly technical field.
