Basic Skills in Paediatric Surgery

Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, 5th November 2013

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh will host this one day course which aims to help paediatric trainees consolidate the basic surgical skills of knot-tying by hand and instrument. Opportunity will be given to demonstrate proficiency in these skills on an individual basis using formal procedure-based assessments. Laparoscopic tissue handling and suturing skills will be practiced using animal models.
