About the club

MSS Case-Based Learning in Surgery aims to provide an interactive opportunity for medical students to work through bread-and-butter surgical presentations in a low-stress environment. Much of the curriculum in FMD is geared towards medical pathologies with little exposure on how to approach and manage surgical patients. This can result in added stress prior to a surgical rotation. To tackle this, our peer-guided sessions will present “new consults” focused on MCC objectives from across various surgical subspecialties including general surgery, ENT, urology, orthopedic and vascular surgery. Students will be able to participate and elicit a relevant clinical history, physical exam findings, what investigations to order and appropriate next steps in management for the case. Sessions will also review relevant anatomy to better prepare students for the OR. These case-based learning sessions link theory obtained in the classroom with clinical practice, and also allow senior medical students to share their experience and tips. Ultimately, the goal is to help students gain the confidence to complete comprehensive and reliable consults during surgical rotations.
