Stitch-Up! A Suturing Course
Location: St James Hospital, Leeds
Course Organiser: Dr Emma Pynn, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
The BSDS are running a brand new suturing course for Junior Doctors on Monday 9th February 2015, at St. James's University Hospital, Leeds.
This course is primarily aimed at FY1 & 2, SHOs and CMTs, however, the course may also be of interest to acute medical trainees, surgical trainees and new dermatology registrars.
The course will consist of lectures on the important aspects as well as lots of supervised practical work on pig skin, including anaesthetic injection, superficial, deep, continuous and interrupted sutures. There will be the opportunity to try more advanced techniques and chat to dermatologists about careers in skin surgery.
