Recognizing the importance of improving surgical technical skills and enhancing patient safety, Covidien, a leading manufacturer of medical devices and supplies, created The Covidien Educational Fund. Started in 2008, this generous gift supports the introduction of the FLS Educational program into North American ACGME-accredited general surgery residency training. This grant has made FLS available to general surgery program directors to use as a standardized educational tool for teaching and verification of learning of their trainees. The Covidien Educational Fund has brought low-cost training and testing directly to over 250 ACGME- accredited general surgical residency programs in the United States and Canada.
The Covidien Education Fund extension period is now closed for calendar year 2013. The deadline to apply was December 31, 2012.
