So You Want To Be A Surgeon?

The University of Hong Kong via edX

Overview

The World Health Organization (WHO) projected urgent need of physicians and surgeons in the next decade and the Lancet Commissions 2015 report indicated the need for surgical services will continue to rise substantially from now until 2030, in particular in the low-income and middle-income regions.

In light of the challenges of new diseases and increase in the aging population, medical and surgical care are ever more essential. The future needs more surgeons!

What do surgeons do? What conditions require surgical care? In this 6-week course, you will be guided through 15 surgical specialties by a team of 40+ clinical experts. You will have a chairside view of the day-to-day work life of a surgeon and learn about diagnosis, treatment planning and surgical care and see surgeons work in a multidisciplinary team to offer the best treatment for the patients.

Surgery is considered both an art and a science. Surgeons not only demonstrate specialist knowledge, techniques, talents and skills in their practice, at the same time, they make use of science and innovation, engaging in tremendous problem-solving and calculated decision-making in patient care.

Whether you aspire to become a surgeon, a physician, a nurse, or you wish to find out more about surgery, this MOOC will be a great roadmap for you.
