Welcome to Surgery 101, a series of podcasts produced with the help of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The podcasts are intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We've aimed to cover a single topic in between 10-20 minutes so that you can quickly get a good idea of the basic concepts involved. Every episode is divided into chapters and concludes with several key points to summarize the topic. We are always keen to receive your feedback on our podcasts, and we are accepting suggestions for additional topics. New episodes are published every Friday.

'Surgery 101' was created by Dr Parveen Boora and Dr Jonathan White, and is supported by the Department of Surgery at the University of Alberta. Our 2010 series of podcasts are brought to you by the Undergrad Surgery Mobile Podcasting Studio Team which is: Jonathan, Jenni and Tracy, with the assistance of the Surgery 101 Experts of Edmonton.

Note to experts: please note that these podcasts are only intended as brief introductions for medical students - we cannot delve into the more complex nuances of advanced surgery in a 10-minute podcast. We encourage all listeners to supplement their learning by seeing patients, assisting at surgeries and reading widely!

Great podcast for nurses!

I’m an RN and love this podcast to refresh my knowledge about each procedure/diagnosis/topic. It’s nice and short. It also gives me a bit more of the physicians prospective which really helps me close the loop/understand more about their role and what their goals are for the surgical patient

C section doesn’t mental removal of placenta

I just listened to the c section episode (which is older) and basically it said (paraphrased): “once the baby is out, fundal pressure is applied to minimize bleeding while the uterus is sewn closed”. No mention of the placenta coming out whatsoever. Yikes lol. I found the sound effects jarring and distracting. They interrupted my ability to make a mental list of whatever they were talking about (Eg when discussing risks, it would go “risk” BEEP “risk” BEEP “risk” BEEP. i guess that’s done to grab your attention but.. it’s a super short podcast and I’m already paying attention (and if I’m not I can rewind) so there’s no need for such jarring sound effects. I’ll give another few episodes a go that have been done more recently to see if they’ve improved on the style.
