The course will consist of lectures on the important aspects as well as lots of supervised practical work on pig skin, including 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.
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.
Feedback from the last Stitch-Up Course
"I was interested to attend the BSDS 1 day Stitch up Course in St. James Hospital in Leeds, due to the variety of topics covered and the practical sessions included in the curriculum. I was much surprised by the areas of topics covered... The day was rich and full of new areas I thought very interesting to both learn and have ‘’hands on" experience.
I could not have asked for better course and I can not emphasize enough on how the organizers were approachable, very helpful and supportive... I found this course to be highly valuable, very well co-ordinated, motivational and raised my level of confidence, experience and knowledge as well as provided me with the inspiration and aim to gain further higher experience in Dermatology surgical skills. It was definitely worthy of all efforts."
