This Week in SCORE (TWIS)
SCORE is pleased to offer This Week in SCORE® (TWIS) to assist general surgery residents and training programs in covering the SCORE Portal’s content. TWIS is a sequence of suggested topics over a two-year cycle. Each week a new topic is featured, along with the related modules and a new 10-question quiz.
TWIS may be used by programs for didactic conference planning or by residents to create self-study plans. There are also four weeks "off" per year, to allow time for catching up or individual review.
Residents and programs are able to track performance on the weekly quizzes,
including on individual quiz questions.TWIS is available to all portal subscribers - please log in to view the TWIS area. For more information about TWIS, please contact us.
