A delicate maneuver

A delicate maneuver Timothy K. Kellett, a participant in the Mini-Medical School I course, gets some tips on suturing a simulated laceration from Corey Ming-Lum, M.D., a clinical fellow in the Department of Surgery during the course’s suture lab Oct. 16. Students practice with real suturing tools on a synthetic material that feels similar to real skin. The eight-week course covers such topics as strokes, shoulder injury and repair, cardiac disease, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s disease, genetics, diabetes, emergency medicine and medical ethics.
