The Art of Suturing

1447da70 seeable

Taught by Umut S

Umut is a practicing surgeon at NYU and teaches suturing to medical students.  She lives in Brooklyn Heights with her husband.

This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

Learning how to throw stitches is a rite of passage in medical school. If you've ever watched Grey's Anatomy and thought "I can do that," then this class is for you.

In this hands-on course, we'll cover the different types of suture material, how to handle a needle driver like a pro, and basics of knot-tying. In the second half, you'll practice your new craft using medical-grade materials on simulated skin (bananas!). Release your inner surgeon.
