SURG 203 - Advanced Surgical Procedures


Credits: 2
Lecture Contact Hours: 2
Description: In this didactic course, students will explore concepts related to the advanced procedures of peripheral vascular, cardiothoracic, neurologic, and ophthalmic surgical specialties. Application of anatomy and physiology, steps of each surgical procedure, and knowledge of the required items for each step will allow the student to build an understanding of surgeon anticipation. A reinforcement of the surgical approach and technological advancement will prepare students for future adaption and change in the field of surgical technology. Students will take this course concurrent with their first clinical rotation. Students must pass the course successfully with a 3.0 or better to continue in the program.
