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 info but annoying sound effects

As a PA student, I listened to this while driving back and forth to my general surgery rotation site every day. It has a lot of good info, and it really helped me study during the 40-minute commute. However, it has some really annoying sound effects that are very distracting. The ambulance sirens are particularly inappropriate and distracting while driving and would make me stop and look for the ambulance while on the commute. Even when I listened to it while not driving, things like children cheering or applause would distract me from my train of thought while studying. Before I could consider giving this a 5/5, those sound effects would have to go.

Great resource for surgery clerkship

The podcast reviews what you need to know. Helped me a question or two from my attendings/residents and helped me ask them good follow up questions. Info here lined up w/ Pestana’s and Recall.
