Dr. Andrew Nunn receives national acclaim for innovative Surgical Critical Care education 

Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Nunn, the 2021 winner of the Surgical Critical Care Program Directors’ Society (SCCPDS) Innovation in Education award. Calling upon the support and resources of Andrew Mitchell Nunn, MD the Wake Forest Center for Experiential and Applied Learning (CEAL) and industry professionals, Andrew Nunn, MD, FACS, Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery led the creation of the Trauma Exposures and Techniques, or “TET” curriculum, in 2017. The curriculum was conceived to close skills gaps and weave evidence-based instruction into the training of Acute Care Surgery (ACS) fellows. Combining cadaveric procedure labs, live ultrasound scanning, and standardized patient exams, the monthly lab sessions build the trainees’ confidence and proficiency in their skill performance. The lab has become a highlight for current and prospective ACS fellows. In recognition of his vision and effort in the creation of the TET lab, Nunn will accept the Innovation in Education award at the annual meeting of the SCCPDS later this year.
