Enter the world of general surgery in this hands-on class held in the VirtuOHSU surgical skills lab on the OHSU campus. OHSU surgeons and medical students will introduce you to aspects of general surgery and surgical specialties. Workshops and lab experiences include laparoscopic simulators, suture labs, surgical instrument demonstrations, viewing surgery by video, exposure to sterile technique and operating room conduct. In addition, you will have the opportunity to tour an actual operating room and see a demonstration of an operating robot. You will receive tips for successful acceptance into medical school in a presentation entitled “Medical School Insiders Guide” as well as gain insight into the surgical specialty in the presentation “Surgery 101.” You will also have an opportunity to ask questions in an open forum attended by OHSU faculty, residents, and medical students.
