Keynote speaker

This year’s keynote speaker is Gurjit Sandhu, PhD. Dr. Sandhu joins us from the University of Michigan, where she is an assistant professor of Surgery and Medical Education. Dr. Sandhu’s work focuses on the development of competency-based assessment frameworks and faculty and resident development to achieve graduated autonomy in the operating room. She will be presenting a framework for developing skills in imparting entrustment to residents which will support our planned upcoming participation in the American Board of Surgery Pilot implementing Entrustable Professional Activities.
