SURG 205: Technical Training and Preparation for the Surgical Environment

This course is designed for preclinical medical students interested in acquiring the technical skills and clinical orientation necessary to learn and participate in the surgical environment.

Students are also expected to spend 1 hour outside of class per week doing pre-reading and skills practice.nnTime commitment: The first few sessions will be held from 7-9AM. However, later sessions that involve more complex skills (i.e. cadaver lab) may occur at different times (though also on Wednesday mornings). The class also requires one mandatory operative shadowing experience with an attending surgeon outside of normal class hours.nnEntry into the course: First priority will be given to second year medical students, especially those who could not enroll in the course in the prior year. We will accommodate as many first year medical students as possible (this will be achieved by random lottery). nnIndicate your interest in the course here: https://goo.gl/forms/o6Vu2Auz0IXkdyAc2.
