  • Apprentice Doctor: Suturing & Fracture Reduction Workshops:
    • Learn basic principles of wound care, practice surgical knot tying techniques, and then perform a simulated fracture reduction of a long bone, from scrub and site preparation to fracture fixation and surgical wound closure, just like med students experience and practice.
