RCSEd Cadaveric Major Open Abdominal Surgery Course
This course will provide comprehensive and condensed learning experience to compensate for the progressive reduction in the time spent by trainees in theatre as well as the decrease in the numbers of open procedures in general surgery.
Trainees level - ST3 to ST6 (or equivalent). Senior Medical Students (4th, 5th, 6th Year) interested in a career in surgery can attend as observers Please contact us for further information and to register.
Medical Students, ST3, ST4, ST5, ST6, Nurses
Short presentations followed by practical hands-on workstations - performing open surgical procedures on cadavers under direct supervision.
The course aims to address the gap in the market for courses covering intermediate and major open abdominal procedures. In the past, there was no need for this type of course as trainees acquired the necessary skills through 'apprenticeships' and long hours of training. This course will aid the current training model.
After having attended this course participants will have the knowledge and skills required to perform the following surgical procedures under supervision:
- Segmental colectomy
- Perforated peptic ulcer and bleeding peptic ulcer
Course Fee - £600.00

Course Fee for Nurses - £50.00
Course fee for Senior Medical Students (4th, 5th & 6th Year) to attend as observer - £40.00
