Stage 2 & 3 Surgical Skills Wet Lab

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. Beginner students should sign up for an introductory skills session which are held throughout the year – keep an eye on the Facebook page for details.

This event is made possible by the help of Covidien, who are donating the sutures and pork belly.

Time and Date: 14th May, 6 – 7:30 pm

Location: KPEC Level 2, RPAH (map)

*** Registration has now closed, please like and follow our Facebook page for information on upcoming events.
