Join the Department of Surgery at the Quality Inn & Conference Centre for a new full-day program filled with various surgical topics and skills for primary care practitioners!

The program will begin with sessions that will explore a range of topics from the management of skin lesions to assessment strategies and evidence-based approaches for thyroid conditions, the shoulder, common cervical spine complaints, refractory GERD, dysphagia, hernias and mitral valve dysfunction.

The sessions will be followed by a hands-on carousel during which attendees will practice various surgery-based skills and integrate feedback from surgeon-coaches. Carousel topics include:

  • Plastic Surgery: Excision of Cysts / Instruments and Suturing Techniques
  • ENT: Shave versus Punch Biopsies (Special Cases: Ear and Nose)
  • Orthopedic Surgery: "What to Inject When You're Injecting": A Framework for Deciding When, What and for Whom to Consider Knee Injections
  • Neurosurgery: Hands on Pratice of a Neurological Exam for Radiculopathy and Cervical Myelopathy 
  • General Surgery: Assessment of a Hernia / Abdomen Exam for Common Complaints

 

Please note that back-up session recordings will be available for learners who are unable to attend an in-person program due to health or emergency issues.
