Greetings from Manipal,
Manipal Academy of Higher Education is a highly sought after private university in India and abroad. Recently it’s been awarded with “Institute of Eminence” from the HRD of Government of India and ranked in the 701-750 bracket in the world QS rankings (the only Indian private University). Kasturba Medical College Manipal is a gem under the MAHE, consistently ranked within the 10 best medical colleges in India. KMC is ranked 351 – 400 QS encouraging medical education and research at all levels.
Department of Surgery, Kasturba Medical College Manipal has been conducting CMEs since 1982. Innovative ideas and methods have been incorporated over the years in the CME program organized by the department.
A Surgical Skills Workshop was also conducted along with the CME in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 prevented us from offering this much appreciated workshop during the last year.
The Basic Surgical Skills Course by Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is a structured two days course available to surgical residents in the UK and a few other counties to impart basic skills to surgical residents. The BSSC RCSEd will have resource faculty and technical personnel from RCSEd. The course is of two days duration and includes suturing, stapling and anastomosis skills using animal and human tissues.
