Sydney – May 2024 (Saturday DTBC) 

This one-day course will provide an opportunity to review the anatomy of the foot ankle.  The course is a useful adjunct to the ACPS BSSET course http://www.acps.edu.au/courses_events.php

It is an interactive course involving informal presentations, discussion and hands on cadaveric dissection workshops, based in a small group environment.  The workshop is capped at a maximum of 18 participants and will involve demonstration and facilitation by two Members of the ACPS and four surgical registrars.  The content of the workshop includes: 

  1. Guided and free dissection of the forefoot (including hallux), midfoot and rearfoot;
  2. Injection techniques of the foot and the ankle;
  3. An update on nail and curettage procedures, including suturing techniques peri-ungually; and

Basic Surgical Skills Education & Training

The BSSET has been designed to provide a professional, accessible and supportive method of engaging health professionals in basic surgical skills training. Following the BSSET course, it is expected that graduates will be confident and proficient foot and ankle surgical assistants. In addition to its stand-alone merit, the course operates as one module within the Podiatric Surgical Training Program.

Fulfilling the course requirements will result in certification by the College of successful completion of the BSSET.
