SUTURE UK Curriculum
We have built a thorough curriculum with a panel of surgeons, surgical trainees and medical students to select for technical and skills. These are all deemed necessary and desirable for the surgically minded undergraduate.
Certification is available upon completion of the entire curriculum
Contact your local SUTURE UK affiliated society for assessment
SUTURE UK Learning Resources
Each curriculum topic is supported by an instruction sheet which has been peer assessed to ensure accuracy and clarity. Further, we will deliver online video demonstration for all skills.
Resource content and quality are subject to rigorous review to ensure that we are delivering accurate, clear material for our students and affiliated skills clubs’ perusal.
SUTURE UK Assessment
Assessment of skills will occur at skills club sessions. Each skill has an associated assessment sheet which once completed can be uploaded to the SUTURE UK website. This will allow students to track their progress through the curriculum.
