College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Suture Clinic

Date: March 22, 2014
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: PAD 109

CLAS Academic Advising and MSU’s College of Human Medicine Surgery Interest Group have once again collaborated to offer Grand Valley students an opportunity to try their hands at the difficult art of suturing. Students will be given the chance to learn and practice suturing techniques on bananas and pigs' feet. 

There are 2 sessions available to students:

 Sat. March 22nd

 Session One: 9am-12pm

 Session Two: 1pm-4pm

Both sessions are the same in content so students will only be allowed to attend one.  Clinics will be held in PAD 109

Space is LIMITED to 24 persons each session, and will cost a $25 non-refundable fee for those interested in keeping their equipment (needle drive, forceps and scissors) and a $22 non-refundable feefor those of you only looking to rent the equipment for the duration of the session.   For those of you that participated in the suture clinic in the fall, the equipment being used in the upcoming session is different/better but you certainly could use what you had in the fall clinic.

 Reservations will be made on a first come, first served basis WITH PAYMENT at the time of reservation.  NO EXCEPTIONS – you must make payment when reserving your spot.


If interested, please register at the CLAS office located in MAK.  Be sure to bring cash (exact change will be GREATLY appreciated) or a check made out to GR Surgery Interest Group, not GVSU.

Registration will begin at 8:00 am on Thursday February 6th and the deadline to register is Thursday March 20th at 5pm.
