Foot and Ankle Institute Leads Premed Suture Workshop at UCCS

This past Wednesday evening, the podiatrists and foot and ankle surgeons at Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado had the privilege of being able to lead a suture workshop for premed college students at University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The Pre-Health Society at UCCS did an amazing job of organizing a great event. Approximately, 60 premed students were able to learn more about foot and ankle surgery as a potential career field and practice their suturing techniques on pigs feet and oranges. It was very encouraging to be able to see the next generation of future physicians and surgeons start to practice their suturing skills, and the students seemed to really enjoy a break from their studies to be able to have a hands-on workshop and practice some new suturing techniques.
