Fellow Feature

Brittany Hasty, MD

Surgical Education Fellow

“I knew as soon as I spent the day at Stanford interviewing for this fellowship that this was exactly where I was meant to be in order to achieve my goals,” said Dr. Hasty. “Through this fellowship I have reaffirmed my passion for surgical education and my lifelong commitment to the field.”

The American College of Surgeons-Accredited Surgical Education Fellowship at Stanford has a tripartite focus on formal training in medical education, research scholarship, and teaching. The latter emphasis on teaching is a unique aspect of the Goodman Surgical Education Center at Stanford.

“As a fellow, I am central to the design and implementation of our pre-clinical surgical skills course, core surgery clerkship for the medical students, and didactic knowledge and surgical skills curricula for the general surgery residents,” said Dr. Hasty. “I also have the opportunity to pursue projects in alignment with my own educational interests.”

A General Surgery Resident at Loyola University Chicago, Dr. Hasty is completing the Surgical Education Fellowship during her professional development year between PY2 and PY3. She received her undergraduate degree at the University of South and her medical degree at the Boston University School of Medicine. She is also pursuing a master’s degree in health professions education.
