A systematic process is described that produced a PGY1 curriculum for the surgical residents at Medical College of Wisconsin. The process involved faculty and residents. Topics were selected based on the six general competencies. Objectives were developed for all topics. The curriculum was delivered to the residents while they were off clinical duty. This Protected Block Curriculum approach was chosen to facilitate the learning structure of the curriculum. Feedback was positive, learning objectives appeared to be achieved and the plan is to continue to develop the PGY1 curriculum in the same format.
