Surgery 101

Welcome to Surgery 101, a series of podcasts produced with the help of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The podcasts are intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We've aimed to cover a single topic in between 10-20 minutes so that you can quickly get a good idea of the basic concepts involved. Every episode is divided into chapters and concludes with several key points to summarize the topic. We are always keen to receive your feedback on our podcasts, and we are accepting suggestions for additional topics. New episodes are published every Wednesday. 'Surgery 101' was created by Dr Parveen Boora and Dr Jonathan White, and is supported by the Department of Surgery at the University of Alberta. Our 2010 series of podcasts are brought to you by the Undergrad Surgery Mobile Podcasting Studio Team which is: Jonathan, Jenni, Shannon, Kat, Karee and Tracy, with the assistance of the surgeons of Edmonton. Note to experts: please note that these podcasts are only intended as brief introductions for medical students - we cannot delve into the more complex nuances of advanced surgery in a 10-minute podcast. We encourage all listeners to supplement their learning by seeing patients, assisting at surgeries and reading widely!

At this month's Surgical Education Rounds, we discussed a classic paper by Musselman et al on intimidation and harassment in surgical education. It was published way back in 2005, but it still has a lot to say about the culture of surgery, and why it's sometimes perceived as a threatening environment. As the authors say:

"Even while their dysfunctional characteristics are recognised, intimidation and harassment are often seen as functional educational tools."

I had a lot of fun talking to our Year 1 medical students today about Surgical Therapeutics! Here are a few images from the session, and a list of questions they asked. I'll try to answer as many of them as I can over the next few days...

Pictures are here

Note: we are looking for students with an interest in scripting, editing and video production to get involved in Surgery 101 Studios this year.  If you're interested, please email us at surgerypodcast@gmail.com or send a tweet to @canadiansurgeon.
