While medical students already as interns get familiar with surgical procedures, there is no regular basic surgical training in their medical curriculum.
In 2014 two medical students set steps to make a change and started the first surgical knots course for medical students.
Since then, this course is running and taught hundred of medical students the important basical skills to deepen their learning and to accelerate their skills training.
Two iBooks are developed for the course. There are step by step explanations and hands-on videos.
The iBooks were awarded by Apple during the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute in Berlin 2016 as one of the best iBooks in education of this year.
