Basic Science
The basic science curriculum for junior residents, designed to assist with preparation for the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination, utilizes the text "The physiological basis of surgery" by O’Leary, Third edition, 2002.

Each month, PG1 and 2 residents are assigned a chapter of the text which they are expected to review during the course of the month. At the end of each month, residents must take an open-book self-test made available on the eQuiz and submit their answers.

Answers are reviewed by the residency director and recorded in the resident portfolios. Correct answers are posted on the website at the beginning of the next month.
