Surgical Simulation Fellow

Lauren Weaver

United States

Lauren Weaver is a general surgery resident at the University of Minnesota with primary interests in surgical education and colorectal surgery. She applied to the fellowship to learn more about best practices in educational research methodologies and simulation, particularly in human-based simulation. Her ultimate goals are to bring more rigor to current simulation curricula, help bridge the gap between simulation and real-world surgical outcomes, and create new surgical education curricula focused on developing effective communication skills in surgery residency.
