Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET) September 18, 2021


4 in stock



The Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET) course uses human cadavers to teach surgical exposure of anatomic structures that, when injured, may pose a threat to life or limb. Students use a course manual that provides an overview of surgical exposures in key areas: neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis, and upper and lower extremities. The one-day course covers each section, beginning with a case-based overview that is followed by a hands-on exposure guided by the faculty. The student-to-faculty ratio is low, allowing extensive faculty guidance and interaction with students. Each student assesses his or her ability to perform each exposure independently, and is evaluated on knowledge and technical skills.
