2-day course in Minor Surgery in Edinburgh
We are proud to present another venue for our highly sought-after Minor Surgery Course for beginners and intermediates. This course has a primary focus on practical experience as opposed to being theory-heavy. This course is led by Professor Fahad Rizvi, a GP and academic who was a surgeon for 6 years prior to moving into general practice. He is an accredited trainer of minor surgery and carries out minor surgery at various practices throughout Leicestershire. This allows for the course to be particularly targeted to GPs but also have scope to teach techniques beyond an average minor surgery course.

The course is tailor-made to help novices build their skills and confidence, whilst allowing intermediates to fine-tune and enhance their surgical skills. With a tailor-made approach for each individual, we will ensure that you are not being left behind, nor being left to twiddle your thumbs!

We have priced this course much lower than those of other providers. The course fees are currently set at £425 inc VAT and will cover the curriculum handbook, equipment necessary to run the course, venue hire and ensure free refreshments and lunch on both days

Organiser reviews
Abbas and Fahad were both excellent in their instruction and training. We learned lots including setting up and running a minor surgery clinic, using the tools, various suturing techniques and lesion removals. The theory and practical aspects combine together to give you full confidence in yourself. I came in with no practical skills, and left confident with the skills I have been taught. I shall now be shadowing in clinics to further develop my skills and then start practicing.
