About
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 Friday. '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 and Tracy, with the assistance of the Surgery 101 Experts 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!

356. Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Surgical Education

In recent times, the terms “equity, diversity, and inclusion” or “EDI” have become buzzwords for academic institutions to demonstrate their commitment to social accountability. Although incredible work is being done, it is important to remember why it was necessary in the first place and what the ultimate goals are. Today, as I discuss EDI in surgical education, I’d like to highlight these are my own thoughts at this stage in my training as I continue to learn and unlearn, and also thank you, the listener, for engaging in what can often be a difficult discussion. There are no formal “learning objectives” for this episode, but I hope you will be able to reflect on the following ideas: The role of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in surgical education regarding what is taught, why, and by whom. How to reflect on and grow your own EDI understanding as you go through your medical training.

174. Thoracic Trauma

In this episode, Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Simon Turner discusses Thoracic Trauma. Thoracic trauma is one of the most intimidating situations in all of surgery.

Add to this the fact that the rib cage prevents direct examination of the structures most at risk and also hampers attempts at control of injuries. Thankfully, most immediately life threatening thoracic injuries can be reliably identified using little more than your eyes, ears and hands, if you know how to do it. The objectives for Thoracic Trauma include the: Assessment Identification of life-threatening injuries Intervention Diagnosis and treatment

Eye Movements in Surgery

At this week's pre-Christmas Surgical Education Rounds, Dr Bin Zheng discussed "Eye movements in surgery: A literature review" by Hermens et al (2013). We had a great discussion about this very new field of research, considering: - is it possible to train a surgeon how to look better? - is 'proper eye movement' a basic, intermediate or advanced skill? - what are the important differences between 'watching' and 'doing'? - is this only applicable to screen-based surgery, or can it be applied to open surgery?

O-SCORE

This month's Surgical Education Rounds was on a recent paper from the University of Ottawa looking at competency in the OR, 'The Ottawa Surgical Competency Operating Room Evaluation (O-SCORE): a tool to assess surgical competence', by Wade Gofton et al (2012). We had a great discussion about how to measure competence in the OR, both from a surgical and a psychometric perspective. A key point was - is there a basic framework of competency that is common across all operations? There's lots of work to do in this area! (Click image for PubMed link)

Learning Under the Gun

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."

The Only Girl in the Room

At last night’s meeting of the League of Surgical Educators, we reviewed Hill & Vaughan’s paper on gendered medical student experiences in surgery, “The only girl in the room: how paradigmatic trajectories deter female students from surgical careers.” The paper was excellent and stimulated a wide-ranging discussion about career decisions for all medical students. Lessons I took away from the discussion were: 1. You only have one life, and you have to decide for yourself how to live it. All choices have consequences, and every path you take will contain regrets. 2. Don’t take anyone else’s word for it when you’re making important decisions about your life. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t be. 3. Becoming a physician is hard, regardless of which speciality you choose. There are plenty of other specialities which require hard work and dedication, and plenty of unhappy doctors in non-surgical specialities. The narrative about a surgical career requiring sacrifice is a powerful one (see also: Grey’s Anatomy), but it’s not necessarily true and it doesn’t have to be that way if you don’t want. 4. We need more good people in surgery, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or class. Click on the image below for the abstract.
