Day 3: Tools of the trade
We will spend this class going over an In depth review of all the standard surgical instruments, supplies, typical room setups, patient positioning, medications used, & necessary surgical team members that are required to safely perform a a cesarean section.

In this class we will work on the assembly of the full term infant into the uterus. We will review of abnormal pathologies that lead to surgical intervention. Students will learn the rationale that will help them anticipate what to prepare in advance of the scheduled & unscheduled Cesarean Section.
Day 4: Practice, Play, Repeat.
Students will finally run through a complete setup of the operating room, including the sterile field. They will get a chance to practice performing the procedure on the anatomical training models they built during the first two classes. Random role assignments will be given to ensure each student understands the overall goals, and what responsibilities are held by whom.
On Demand Refresher Course
Following completion of certification, students will have unlimited access to an on demand refresher course. Our goal is to keep students confident in their skill set so when they are called to perform in any role they feel prepared, not scared.
