Chicago, March 17, 2012:
A medical workshop on the techniques of surgical suturing and Intra-venous (IV) catheter insertion for medical students was organized by Handa Medical Group to raise funds for Mother & Infant Foundation. The workshop was held at Saints Mary & Elizabeth Medical Center, Chicago.
Medical students were given practical training in the aspects of surgical suturing. They tried their hands on animal-models and drapes, learning the basics of various kinds of suture methods. In the second session, students learned and practiced how to insert cannulas into peripheral veins on artificial IV arm simulators. The participants took keen interest in the workshop and liked the ‘hands on’ opportunity to sharpen their skills.
The course was conducted by doctors (Drs Tarsha and Bharti), Surgical Assistants (Ivan and Paul) and a phlebotomist.
Special thanks to Sunny Handa who made this workshop a possibility. He is our Brand Ambassador also. Board members from MIF- Dr Munish Kumar and Hirak Vora- also participated in the workshop.
Handa Medical Group is a Chicago-based placement agency for International Medical Graduates for their clinical rotations in USA.
Next workshop is scheduled to be held in last week of April, 2012.
