Yesterday, our HEAL students learned how to suture, practicing on a pigs foot, which most closely mimics human skin. They were instructed by Dr. Harris Masket and our wonderful TAs. Dr. Masket has extensive experience in sports medicine and has been working with the students throughout the session. For many of the students this was their first hands-on experience like this, and while initial reactions were mixed, by the end they were all smiling over their neat suture lines. Dr. Harris in particular noted how quickly the students picked up the skill and their attention to detail.
