October 2014:

Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET) Course

Nottingham, United Kingdom

October 15, 2014 - October 15, 2014

A human cadaver based, one day course to teach emergency, surgical, lifesaving procedures.

This course is developed by the American College of Surgeons and is one of the only opportunities to participate outside of the USA.

This one-day human cadaver-based course follows a modular, body region approach. Covering five key anatomic areas (upper and lower extremities, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis), 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.

The course fee of £550 is excellent value for money and includes a full-colour Course Manual and DVD.

Feedback from previous candidates is excellent and the pre and post course evaluations consistently show a large increase in confidence and knowledge around each procedure.
