The Standardized Toolbox of Education for Pediatric Surgery (STEPS) is a resource for faculty and senior residents to use for teaching medical students and junior residents. The APSA Education Committee has designed PowerPoint™ web-based teaching tools, and we invite you to explore and use these resources.

Each module is created to be utilized as a disease-based presentation ideally suited for small group interactive learning. The modules are formatted to a standard template that ends with questions to complete the discussion. These modules were not created to be stand-alone self-study tools. The topics chosen are those we believe to be the core knowledge required for pediatric surgery for medical students and junior residents in general surgery.
