Join our suturing masterclass on Sunday 12th May 2024 where you will learn how surgeons effectively manage and assess acute wounds with suture closure. You will be sent our suture kit in the mail before the course starts so you can suture along with the doctors, learning first hand the various techniques needed to be a surgeon.
Suturing a wound is an essential skill that every doctor needs to be competent in. Surgeons suture on a regular basis, but other doctors also need to be confident stitching up lacerations in emergency settings and be able to suture central lines and chest drains in place. Our suture like a surgeon course is for all students interested in careers in medicine to provide some unique work experience for your applications to med school.
Join our doctors live with other students from all over the world as we’ll discuss with you the suturing techniques and with your suture kit, practice alongside the doctors as they provide some great practical work experience all from the comfort of your own home.
A certificate will be sent to you upon completion of the course, verified for 5 hours of medical work experience.
In the morning session we’ll cover all the basic principles and skills needed to learn about the fascinating art of suturing.
We’ll cover exactly when a suture is needed, the many different types of suture, when to use them and the correct handling and tools required to perform each one.
After a break for lunch we’ll go into the second part of the day, practical suturing skills using your suture kit.
The afternoon is practical, where the doctors will show you suturing techniques and you will be able to work alongside them trying your hand at different types of sutures using your suture kit provided.
Medical work experience is invaluable if you’re looking to apply to medicine and this afternoon will be your first step to experiencing some of the practical aspects of the job. We’ll have you knot tying and suturing through our interactive sessions and learning from doctors who have many years experience in the field.
The whole day is designed and tailored for students aged 14-18 who are considering medicine as a career choice and all medical schools look kindly on students that have practical experience of medicine and medical techniques. Demonstrating this is a large factor in deciding who to invite to an interview and used to differentiate between candidates with similar grades.
The day is recorded so you can come back to it anytime for 60 days afterwards to perfect everything and you will also have access to a video to watch at anytime exploring more suture types and techniques.
You’ll receive a certificate from the doctors after the course that you can use in your applications and interviews too.
