ASSET-advanced surgical skills for exposure in trauma

Information and registration

25-26th of November 2024 at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

A course manual is distributed to students prior to taking the course to provide an overview of key surgical exposures in five key anatomic areas: neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis, and upper and lower extremities. The course is two days and will begin with an interactive theoretical afternoon. Day two will be cadaver-based and follows a modular, body region approach. Each section begins with a short case-based overview, followed by a hands-on exposure performed by students under the guidance of faculty. The student-to-faculty ratio is low, allowing extensive faculty guidance and interaction with students. The student assesses his or her ability to perform each exposure independently and is evaluated on knowledge and technical skills.

Course fee: Surgeons 17 500 SEK + VAT. The fee includes ASSET course manual and refreshments throughout.

Course participants: A maximum of 16 surgeons (of which 4 can be orthopedic surgeons). 

Course venue: Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Gothenburg University.

Registration: Open until 28th of October 2024.
