Original Research Highlights UTMB’s Innovative Surgical Training for Residents

Congratulations to Dr. Julie Croley, a current UTMB PGY1 resident in preliminary internal medicine and soon-to-be UTMB dermatology resident for achieving first authorship in important educational research recently conducted in the UTMB Mohs clinic (Croley JA, Malone CH, Goodwin B, Phillips LG, Cole EL, Wagner RF Jr. Mohs surgical reconstruction educational activity: a resident education tool. Advances in Medical Education and Practice). This research demonstrated that PGY3 dermatology and plastic surgery residents benefited by planning wound repairs following Mohs surgery for skin cancer patients. Resident surgical closures were reviewed by the faculty Mohs surgeon and feedback was provided to each resident. Coauthors on his publication were Drs. Helen Malone (UTMB inaugural Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellow), Dr. Richard Wagner (UTMB Mohs Fellowship Director),  Dr. Brandon Goodwin (UTMB Dermatology and Dermatopathology Faculty), Dr. Linda Phillips (Director, UTMB Plastic Surgery), and Dr. Eric Cole (UTMB Plastic Surgery Faculty).
