The objectives of this study are to assess residents' pre-workshop ability and comfort with CVC placement, undergo a standardized online didactic and hands-on clinical training simulation workshop, and subsequently undergo a proficiency test using simulation models to assess competency. The goal of a standardized training module is to create a universal approach to CVC placement in our institution and improve comfort and technical ability of house staff. We hypothesize that this will reduce complications and improve patient care and safety.
