This interactive five-day course teaches the essential surgical decision-making strategies and training techniques for surgeons working in austere conditions.
You will use unembalmed cadavers to practice procedures commonly required in a humanitarian crisis, conflict zone or catastrophe aftermath. Our expert faculty will share hands-on experience gained through their work in places such as Afghanistan, Darfur and Haiti.
You will cover a variety of topics during this course, including:
- Cases associated with conflict and catastrophe, particularly penetrating and crush injuries as well as the management of trauma of the limbs, head, thorax and torso
- Post-disaster/conflict procedures including skin flaps and grafts, and the management of orthopaedic fractures using external fixation and traction
- Decision-making and management of obstetric emergencies including post-partum haemorrhage and caesarean section in austere environments
