Surgical Skills

To put it simply, you guys have asked for more skills so here I am providing them in both Tees and Newcastle!

The aim is simple, show you guys all the basic skills you need to feel confident going into theatre and maybe assisting!

I’ve split the year into phases, we’ve shown you how to scrub, instrument handling, suturing, knot tying and debridement. We’ll then be moving into three specialty specific simulations based around Gen Surg, Vascular and Trauma & Orthopaedics!

I have many more plans to fit in around these but if they sound right up your alley, sign up today!
