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!

    356. Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Surgical Education

    356. Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Surgical Education

    In recent times, the terms “equity, diversity, and inclusion” or “EDI” have become buzzwords for academic institutions to demonstrate their commitment to social accountability. Although incredible work is being done, it is important to remember why it was necessary in the first place and what the ultimate goals are. Today, as I discuss EDI in surgical education, I’d like to highlight these are my own thoughts at this stage in my training as I continue to learn and unlearn, and also thank you, the listener, for engaging in what can often be a difficult discussion.
    There are no formal “learning objectives” for this episode, but I hope you will be able to reflect on the following ideas:
    The role of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in surgical education regarding what is taught, why, and by whom. How to reflect on and grow your own EDI understanding as you go through your medical training.

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.

Thank gawd for this podcast!

I’m a US MS3 interested in psychiatry but needing to make it through my surgery rotation (interesting but anatomy was not my strong suit!). This podcast breaks things down so easily and directly.

Between this and PsychED, I am very grateful for you Canadians <3 Thank you!!

Help.

What’s the name of the orange stuff that put on the skin just prior to surgery to kill bacteria? I forgot what it is.
