Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET) is organized by American College of Surgeons (ACS) and would be held on Nov 02, 2017 at Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event for mid-level and senior surgical residents, trauma and acute care surgical fellows, or any surgeon who wishes to undertake a review of this anatomy. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 6 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
Conference Description :
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 one-day cadaver-based course follows this 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. The Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET) course uses human cadavers to teach surgical exposure of anatomic structures that, when injured, may pose a threat to life or limb.
Conference Objectives are :
• Demonstrate knowledge of key anatomical exposures for the care of injured and acutely ill surgical patients.
• Demonstrate his or her technical ability to expose important structures that may require acute surgical intervention to save life or limb.
• Gain confidence in performing anatomic exposures independently.
• Faculty assessment of a student’s ability to independently perform anatomical exposures will be satisfactory.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
