The Apprentice Doctor® Fracture Reduction Kit and Accredited Orthopedic Course
Illustrated hands-on basic surgical skills and orthopedic course with accompanying simulation kit. Use the orthopedic kit to complete the online future doctor’s orthopedic course! Gain dozens of basic surgical & orthopedic skills! The Future Doctors Academy Orthopedic Course and Fracture Reduction Kit are ideal for ‘basic surgical skills workshops’ to train a wide variety of medical professionals.
Apprentice Doctor® Workshops are used as part of the Envision-Experience’s Advanced Medical Programs. Our courses are also accredited internationally through the International Association of Distance Learning (IADL)
Lay a solid foundation for these surgical skills:
- Basic surgical principles
- Sterility and aseptic technique
- Good lighting
- Sharps safety
- Scalpel holds
- Dissection and hemostasis
- Wound closure in layers
- Suturing and knot tying techniques
- Wound dressing
- Orthopedic principles
- Reduction, fixation and immobilization
- Casts, splints and slings
Optimal training experience – recommend 2-4 students per kit/surgical station
