Undergraduate Tech Skills 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 October 28th 2019 from 6:00PM to 8:15PM.

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, Dalton Budhram, at dbudhram@qmed.ca by Monday, October 20th if you are interested in participating or if you have any questions!!
