ADVANCED SURGICAL SKILLS FOR EXPOSURE IN TRAUMA is one-day cadaver-based course intended for mid-level and senior surgical resident, trauma and acute care surgical fellows, or any surgeon who wishes to undertake a review of human anatomy. 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.
Course Time: 7:00a.m - 5:00p.m
The objectives are as follows:
Demonstrate knowledge of key anatomical exposures for the care of injured and acutely ill surgical patients.
Demonstrate his or her technical ability to expose important structures that may require acute surgical intervention to save life or limb.
Gain confidence in performing anatomic exposures independently.
Faculty assessment of a student’s ability to independently perform anatomical exposures will be satisfactory
