Past SUSS Events
SUSS is holding an intermediate surgical skills wet lab for Stage 2 and 3 students. Suturing will be practised on pork belly and taught by junior doctors from RPAH.
Please note that this is for students with prior experience suturing. The session will be expanding on simple interrupted and instrument tie techniques so students should be comfortable with these. Unfortunately we are only able to accommodate 30 students. Click on the post for more info.
We are going to run some introductory suturing and knot tying sessions for Med 1 and 2 students over the next 8 weeks (21 March to 9 May). These sessions will be held in the Blackburn Skills Lab (Room 318) at 0730 and will be directed at beginners who are interested in developing some basic skills. More info…
