The advanced capabilities of the Baylor Operative Skills Simulation (BOSS) Center allow for a varied and extensive selection of courses and labs to take place. Our team members are professional and proficient when working with cadaver tissue, and they continually participate in advanced educational training to stay abreast of new developments. The BOSS Center’s lab is able to procure specimens to fit the needs of any course, as well as prepare, store and provide disposition of the specimens.
The BOSS Lab has been devised to be the ideal research setting for cadaveric education. A collaboration of the Department of Surgery and the Department of Orthopedics at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, the BOSS Lab is located in the Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital building.
The 2,400-square-foot facility can accommodate up to eight learning teams with full laparoscopic and open instrumentation and also offers equipment for rent, such as a C-arm and a trained technician, as well a microscope. The lab has a large selection of general hand instruments enabling participants to experience thorough and accurate training.
A private locker room and storage of personal belongings also is available, along with personal protective equipment (PPE) and scrubs for all participants.
Baylor University Medical Center has the capabilities for video recording, live-streaming, conferencing and broadcasting to anywhere in the world. Campus-wide Wi-Fi access is free of charge. Catering services are available for full- or half-day events.
The BOSS Lab is routinely used by medical students, residents, fellows, attending physicians and medical device companies who wish to improve their skills and test innovative new approaches in the field of surgical care.
The BOSS Center is located at third floor of the Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital, on the campus of Baylor University Medical Center.
