Description

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 Wednesday. '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 many wonderful students, with the assistance of the surgeons of Edmonton.

Welcome back to Surgery 101 Studios

 

It's that time of the year again - the holidays are almost here, and we're celebrating another successful year at Surgery 101. 

 

We decided to make a short video to say thanks to all of our fans around the world, and also to show you some of the large team of people who are involved in caring for a patient undergoing surgery. 

 

It's called the 12 days of surgery, and we hope you enjoy it!
