Suture practice course was held for 20 Norwegian students on the 29th of February at the university. The goal of the course was to teach students how to do different suture techniques for skin closure.
In order to be good at suturing, students need to practice as much as they can. With the help of this course, attendees had the opportunity to try suturing for the first time, meanwhile, others could develop their techniques. The event was organized by the Norwegian Veterinary Society for Norwegian vet students studying at the University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest. Board members of the Society volunteered to be the instructors and the University provided a lecture hall as a venue.
„Suturing is part of the 4th year curriculum, but it’s always a good idea to learn the basics before that. It’s also fun! For those students who had already known some suturing techniques, it is a great opportunity to practise and after this, we can help others by teaching them. I think it was very helpful for all of us and a nice social break from all the studies” – said Janita Aamo vet student.
