Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET)
June 3, 2019
Credits Offered: CERT OF COMPLETION - 0.00
The course provides an overview of key surgical exposures in five key anatomic areas: neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis, extremities, upper and lower. A one day cadaver-based course follows this modular, body region approach. Each section begins with a short case-based overview, followed by a hands-on exposure performed by students under the guidance of faculty. The student to faculty ratio is low, allowing extensive faculty guidance and interaction with students. The student assesses his or her ability to perform each exposure independently and is evaluated on knowledge, and technical skills.
