Basic Surgical Skills Course (CAMBODIA)

5th and 6th June 2019

The University of Health Sciences, 73 Preah Monivong Blvd (93), Phnom Penh, Cambodia

About

The Basic Surgical Skills Course (BSSC) focuses on key technical skills including knot tying and the safe, effective use of instruments. Following a review and practice of key principles, the course will rapidly contextualise these skills into high-fidelity simulated models, largely using animal material.

The Basic Surgical Skills Course (BSSC) has continued to evolve and has proven to be popular in many countries around the world and is now a mandatory component of the surgical training curriculum. At present, there is no structured training course in Cambodia. Therefore, the Basic Surgical Skills Course (BSSC) could provide a foundation for the development of a formal curriculum.

The concept of running the BSSC in Cambodia evolved from discussions between Mr Wee Lam, a Consultant Plastic and Hand Surgeon, and Mr Jim Gollogly, a Consultant Surgeon based at The Children’s Hospital in Phnom Penh.
