To be fair, i say that a lot about practicals, particulary those where i get really involved.. but i can't imagine doing anything more fun with a chicken thigh, than to make an incision and to suture it back up again.. (okay, eating a roasted one could top that).
Here's a shot of my first few sutures:
We all gathered in the MDL @ mile end, and each sat around a placemat with a thigh on it. It sort of resembled a cookery class, with knives (scapel) and other equipment at the ready, all laid out for you. Each table was led by a dermatologist who gave us the low-down on how to get it right.. and we were then given 30 minutes to get as many sutures into that chicken thigh as time would allow..
...before we got kicked out, and the thigh recycled and re-used by the next set of students. (Lucky i squeezed myself into the first session, and got to destroy the chicken thigh first).All in all.. a nice bit of fun for a friday afternoon, before the last ICA of the year next friday -
Bring on HSPH/LOCO ICA! (eeeeeks~!)
