Undergraduate Teaching Opportunity

Are you looking for an opportunity to teach at the undergraduate medicine level? Do you have a passion for technical skills and want to pass on your knowledge and tips to medical students? Do you want a free dinner?

Queen's Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) is hosting a Suturing Workshop for the first and second year medical students on Monday, October 29 from 5:30 to 8:15 pm, and is looking for your help!

Commitment would involve teaching the basic skills of suturing (specifically: sharps safety, the simple interrupted stitch, the vertical mattress stitch, and knot tying) in a small group setting for two 1-hour long, back-to-back sessions. Students will use synthetic suture pads as practice material. A preparation module, with instructions on how the stitches are to be taught, will be provided. This is an excellent opportunity to foster your teaching and mentorship skills in a low key environment. A pizza dinner will be provided as a thank-you in advance of the session.

Please contact FMIG’s Senior Technical Skills Rep, Nicole Asztalos, at nasztalos@qmed.ca by Wednesday, October 24 if you are interested in participating or if you have any questions.

Thank you!
