Hamid Tehrani (Plastic Surgeon and CBS member) has developed Surgeryskills.com, a venture aimed at improving access to surgical training through free or low-cost courses. The online courses have been adopted by a number of UK and International medical schools, numerous medical societies, and PLASTA (Plastic Surgery Trainees Association).
The courses are also badged by BAPRAS with CME points.
At the end of each course the students submit their work and get individual feedback, with a printable certificate being issued for their portfolio.
The 'Introduction to Surgery' course is aimed at FY trainees, whilst the 'Suturing Skills' course is suitable for FY, CT and early ST trainees.
