APAC-EM: Visiting Surgeon Program (VSP)

The Visiting Surgeon Program is designed to provide surgeons with the opportunity to learn from an expert surgeon in a hospital environment. For HCPs wanting to learn about Smith & Nephew trauma procedures and product solutions, each visit provides a customized agenda based on their individual educational requirements. The key feature that defines a VSP is the opportunity to observe live surgeries in the Operating Room.

Core Education Principles

•    To be trained on the safe and effective use of S&N products
•    To observe live surgeries
•    To learn new surgical approaches and techniques
•    To improve existing knowledge with advanced level “tips and tricks”


Participant Profile:
