|BSS returns to East Jerusalem|
|Wednesday, 21 August 2013|
The third Basic Surgical Skills course was held at the Augusta Victoria Hospital in East Jerusalem on 20-22 May. Twenty candidates from across the West Bank and Gaza were at the event, which has grown from previous years to include a Training the Trainers session. Delegates also benefited from additional laparoscopic trainers donated from the Royal Cornwall Hospital, where organisers Robin and Magdalena Kincaid are based. In another key development, the event in May saw senior delegates from previous years stepping into teaching roles.
