Back to the Suture Series


"Back to the Suture" is an internationally recognised weekly virtual surgical taster webinar series that aims to provide a speciality 'tasters' to junior doctors/medical students. These sessions are condensed and outline the training pathway, a day in the life in the speciality as well as two common 'exam' cases and one 'wild-card' case to show the very best operating in that speciality as an elevator pitch.

At the beginning of each session, there is a surgical skill demonstration, each linked to the respective speciality. These are developed with BSS tutors and are meant to inspire people to practice surgical skills in labs and accredited courses.

The first course of this series was accepted for presentation at ASME's 'changing medical education' conference 2021. This is the second edition of the course, which was highly successful in its first iteration. We plan to ride the wave of online virtual webinar courses to stay current and use cutting edge methods to make the teaching as rewarding as possible (and always free). So come along for skills demos, exciting cases and more! For more information, please visit or @back2thesuturecourse on social media.
