Description

The ASSET course uses human cadavers to teach surgical exposure of anatomic structures that when injured may pose a threat to life or limb. A course manual with DVD is distributed to students prior to taking the course to provide an overview of key surgical exposures in five key anatomic areas: neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis, and upper and lower extremities. The one-day, cadaver-based course follows this modular, body region approach. Each section begins with a short case-based overview, followed by a hands-on exposure performed by students under the guidance of faculty.  The student assesses his or her ability to perform each exposure independently and is evaluated on knowledge and technical skills.

Course Objectives

  • Demonstrate knowledge of key anatomical exposures for the care of injured and acutely ill surgical patients
  • Demonstrate his/her technical ability to expose important structures that may require acute surgical intervention to save life or limb
  • Gain confidence in performing anatomic exposures independently
  • Demonstrate ability to independently perform anatomical exposures while being assessed by Faculty

Target Audience
The intended audience includes mid-level and senior surgical residents, trauma and acute care surgical fellows, or any surgeon who wishes to undertake a review of this anatomy.
