Welcome to your Surgery course!

This course can be one of the most memorable experiences of your fifth year. This may be the only chance you will ever have to see such things as a new born surgery, open-heart surgery, a laparoscopic surgery, a trauma, or even an appendectomy. It can be an unbelievable experience, but we also recognize that it can be quite intimidating. With this course, we hope to unlock the mystery of surgery and to give you some tips on how to excel on this course. 

We see this as an opportunity to teach you some basic concepts about surgery that will benefit you regardless of which field you chose to enter. It also gives us a chance to show you how exciting surgery can be and to give you a sense of why we chose it for our own careers. With the help of this guide, we hope to unlock the mystery of surgery, to provide some tips on how to excel on this course, and to outline your responsibilities.

The aim of the Surgery course is for the students to achieve a defined body of knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for the recognition and understanding of the management of patients with diseases which may be treated by surgeons. 
This course will provide the foundation necessary for the student to enter into any field of medical practice.

The course will be presented in form of lectures (70 hours), seminars (70 hours), and practical clinical skills (95 hours). Attending all forms of teaching is mandatory, which will be recorded!
