SCALPEL 

Gimbernat Surgical Symposium

On the past 24th of February we held our first Surgical Symposium for medical students.

​We had the pleasure to listen to the conferences of Dr. Salvador Navarro (Parc Taulí, Sabadell), who talked about the ATLS management of a polytraumatic patient and its implementation in Spain, and Dr. Julio Mayol (Hospital Clínico San Carlos, Madrid) who gave a lecture about the future of surgery.

Also, medical students from all of the catalan faculties could do dynamic workshops. They could learn about the management of a politrauma patient using a simulation room, practise plastic surgery techniques such as skin grafts or flaps, sew up a cardiac valve in an animal heart, proceed to use an arthroscopy device with traumatology surgeons, practise ophtalmology surgery skills, attend suture workshops and even do a medical escape room.

Between the workshops, we had a brunch organised for students to ask the doctors and residents questions and concerns about their speciality.

At the end of the day, we had a closure act in which we thanked all participants and did a special mention to our professor Dr. Manuel Pera for his implication in the organization of the symposium.

We hope it was a rewarding experience for all the assistants. We are looking forward to seeing you again at Scalpel 2021.
