Prof Partha Vaiude
Managing Director, Adjunct Professor LSAD LJMU, Consultant Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon
Incredibly useful & enlightening for the interview process.
Overall a very good course. I learned alot and I liked that we got theoretical lectures in order to design flaps better. I will definitely recommend Surgical Art and I hope to come back.
Fantastic Course. Wasn’t expecting the quality of models used. Very impressed. Great tutors – great to have such senior surgeons present.
Great course, good value for money. Very good faculty who were very friendly, helpful and approachable.
Excellent, learnt so much, faculty very helpful!
Good overall assessment, mainly due to friendly and helpful tutors. Extremely useful for CT1 level and an opportunity to dive beyond basic principles for higher levels (up to ST3)
The Course was excellent, very informative and full of expert advice from the tutors
Excellent. Packs a lot in but at a good pace. Highly recommend. Good personal feedback.
I have enjoyed the two days intensive hand surgery fellowship with Prof Vaiude in which we have went ove the approach to hand trauma and surgical techniques used, it was a very fruitful experience and excellent learning opportunity. I am looking forward for the upcoming courses and other learning opportunities in Liverpool with you.
Well done guys – really enjoyed it!
Excellent, highly recommend! Much better structure and explanation of basic principles (than other courses).
Very good for international Medical Graduates.
Without a doubt an excellent course. I always enjoy working with people who are passionate at what they do and are willing to teach others. Thanks for everything and I will hopefully come back to take another course.
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.
I will recommend highly. I have not been to another course where I felt so comfortable and treated like a colleague and not just a delegate. Thank you!
Great, I feel much more confident and organised. It’s just what you need before the interview.

Really useful in all aspects: personal improvement, body image and knowledge. I’ve not come across any books, courses or papers or anywhere that gives advice on strategy so this was very useful. The portfolio section is invaluable at providing tips on maximising experience.

It was a great experience!
Really good introduction to plastics. Will recommend and be attending other courses
Good candidate to instructor ratio. Really liked the studio. Much better than the hospital.
