Really good course to get the basic concept of flap & graft, especially at early stages of training. Coming to this course with no idea how a flap is designed this has definitely improved my knowledge!
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. There was plenty of freedom to focus on my own learning needs.
I was very pleased with all the course parts, it has brought a lot of experience for my future career. The teachers were patient and explained where I was doing good things and where I was lacking.
Sublime! I have heard very good things about Surgical Art but had no idea that I would find the hand trauma course as fantastic as it was. The faculty were fantastic, Amy was so very friendly and approacheable and Mr Bell and Faculty explained things clearly. I am very impressed with the models used and am certain I will be back to complete the other Surgical Art Courses.
Very different, new insight. Has identified things not picked up on me before.
Excellent Course, as a beginner it was a useful introduction to the principles behind the key techniques and a chance to practice in a good learning environment.
Excellent clarification of some very tricky concepts. Very good course.
Excellent. Very lucky to have one to one mentoring throughout the day. Susie is a very encouraging mentor and provides constructive feedback.
Really useful and touched on areas never addressed nor tutored before.
Very worthwhile course & opened my eyes to new concepts. Great atmosphere. Improved my appreciation for facial form & structures
