Surgical training e-learning launched

Published: Thursday, 14 December 2017

Surgical trainees can now access high-quality e-learning to support their development thanks to eIntegrity.

eSurgery covers a broad theoretical knowledge base common to all surgical specialties. It helps early years’ trainees develop the basic knowledge and skills required of a surgeon.

The surgery course has been developed in the UK by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare. However, the e-learning is relevant to practitioners globally.

Written by highly experienced, practising surgeons, the quality-assured content is packed with interactive features, such as videos, audio clips and questions, to help explain the complex surgical principles and build learning and understanding. e Surgery News3

The programme modules, which map to the UK’s Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme (ISCP), cover:

  • Basic science knowledge relevant to surgical practice
  • Common surgical conditions
  • Basic surgical skills
  • Peri-operative care of the surgical patient
  • Assessment and management of patients with trauma
  • Organ and tissue transplantation

eSurgery is already being used by doctors in the Gaza Strip to develop their clinical skills and knowledge through a focused training programme co-ordinated by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
