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.
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 will provide guidance and support for participating skills clubs to ensure that they are able to deliver the material across the academic year. The individual skills clubs’ will be able to follow the curriculum and utilise the learning resources to structure their skills sessions, with guidance from the lead tutor.
Assessment and Certification
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.
Once all skills have been successfully completed, SUTURE UK will provide a certificate of curriculum completion.
