Suturing

Department:     Surgery, UMCG
Supervisor:        I.S. Atiev MDAtiev verkleind

Get a head start on learning a fundamental surgical skill. Our suture workshop provides you with the training and materials to practice a variety of suturing methods (simple interrupted, simple continuous and subcutaneous) on real porcine skin. The workshop consists of two parts. The first part is a theoretical outline of several aspects of wound closure, illustrated with pictures and short animations. The second part is a practical session that features the guidance of an attending surgeon, allowing personal instruction for every participant. By the end of the workshop, students leave with basic skills necessary to practice basic suturing and achieve mastery.
Note: The practicing will be on real pig’s legs.
