Management of Surgical Emergencies Course
SET3-5 Trainees in the General Surgery SET Program
International Medical Graduates.
The Management of Surgical Emergencies course aims to assist SET 3+ Trainees, IMGs, and Consultants to:
Make better decisions, negotiate dilemmas, and manage distractors in emergency surgery
Achieve better outcomes
Work more effectively within a team
Improve situational awareness
Provide strategies for getting out of trouble
Assist with Fellowship Exam preparation
Run over two full days, MOSES involves a variety of teaching methods including core lectures, skills stations, and group discussions. The course focuses on assessment and decision making skills for emergency situations, within the peri-operative period covering, but not limited to, the following:
Upper Gastro Intestinal Bleed/ Gastro Intestinal Bleed
Post Thyroidectomy Bleed
Complications after rectal surgery
Soft Tissue Infection
With a high ration of faculty to a low ratio of participants, MOSES will offer you an excellent opportunity to develop strategy and problem solving skills for commonly encountered surgical emergencies in a small team environment, with senior General Surgical Consultants. MOSES is aimed at International Medical Graduates and senior SET Trainees, particularly Trainees and IMGs who are contemplating their Fellowship exam, and post Fellowship General Surgical Fellows/Consultants.
What's being said about MOSES?
“MOSES is likely to become the gold standard approach to emergency surgery. It is an excellent two day course …
I would highly commend this course to other trainees."
