Publisher: Canadian Network for International Surgery

Guide Book (First Edition, 2009):

The overall objective of this course is to provide a core set of technical skills that are to be competently and confidently understood and practiced by all certified surgical clinicians. These skills are basic blocks which emphasize: safety for both surgeon and patient, compliance with universal sterility requirements, proper instrument handling, adequate wound assessment, respect for tissue and adequate attention to detail pertinent to a specific procedure. Segments have been taken from the Essential Surgical Skills Course and modified to create a basic surgical skills course that is specific for surgical trainees in Africa and that will satisfactorily fulfill the requirements for such a course by the College of Surgeons of Eastern and Southern Africa (COSESCA) for fellowship candidates.

The course includes the following lectures:
1. The importance of leadership
2. The need for expert thinking
