Pricing Changes Coming in June

To give training programs early notice, we have announced some upcoming changes to our subscription pricing. These changes will take effect as of June 21, 2017 (changed from June 25). You are free to renew your program's subscription until that date at our current pricing. As of that date, all programs will be charged a per-trainee fee of $165 per year. This applies to residents, fellows, medical students, and physician extenders in training.

The annual program license fee will remain $500, and can cover all training programs at a single institution if desired. The $500 fee includes one program director account, one program coordinator account, and five accounts for faculty or additional administrative personnel. The fee for additional faculty, recent graduates, and other personnel will change to $325 each per year.

We will send reminders in late May regarding subscription orders for 2017-2018. Orders will once again be placed through the SCORE Portal. Questions may be directed to subscriptions@surgicalcore.org.

TWIS Schedule for 2017-2018

The two-year This Week in SCORE (TWIS) topic schedule has been updated to include the 2017-2018 academic year -- see our TWIS schedule page for the updated Excel and PDF files. We've made some changes from 2015-2016 based on program feedback, including moving an "OFF" week to Thanksgiving. We will continue to refine and improve the schedule so it best meets the needs of programs.

In addition, we are pleased to announce that all TWIS weeks/quizzes have been posted for the 2016-2017 year, with the exception of March 12 due to new systems-based practice modules coming in late February. As soon as those modules are posted, that week will be made available, and all weeks will then be available for swapping by programs using the "Edit Schedule" feature.
