About this event

  • Date and time Sat 4 Sep 2021 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Plastic Surgery

This crash course webinar will help junior doctors who are new to plastic surgery and aspiring medical students to understand, learn, and feel confident with basic plastic surgery presentations in limb trauma, infections and burns. 

The undergraduate curriculum sparsely covers plastic surgery which contributes to a lack of confidence when ‘starting out’. This crash course is designed to be a high yield, interactive, 1-day webinar to cover all the key knowledge required to approach common plastic surgery presentations, including essential regional anatomy.

The content is directly relevant to the ST3 curriculum and will be delivered by Specialist Registrars and Consultants. There will be a Q&A session after each speaker. 

Attend to get a head start! 

This webinar will help you:

  • Understand clinically relevant regional anatomy of the hands, skin and soft tissues  
  • Learn how to assess traumatic injuries of the hands and lower limbs, skin and soft tissue infections and burns  
  • Learn how to initiate management for the above conditions 
  • Feel confident in the management of common plastic surgical presentations 

CPD learning applied. 

This webinar is being offered free of charge to all students and trainees due to funding from the Plastic Surgery Section.
