The Black Belt Academy of Surgical Skills, under the excellent leadership of Mr David O’Regan, is establishing a role as a key provider of surgical education to the next generation of surgeons. BBASS carefully combines a number of important principles to ensure delivery of high quality education.
The curriculum is designed to ensure a trainee has a good understanding of fundamental surgical sciences. This is then integrated with a step-wise, systematic approach to acquiring surgical skills. This teaching is all delivered by faculty members who are also able to adopt the role of mentor. The combination of these factors means that graduates of the academy will be in a great position to become safe and successful surgeons of tomorrow.
