We teach you the correct approaches both to closure and to the entire process leading up to closure.  We teach you how to:

  • Begin with the end in mind – think cosmetic outcome, infection potential, likelihood for dehiscence
  • Know when to ask – you’ll exit the course knowing when and why you should consult surgical or orthopedic services for certain wound presentations
  • Slam dunk that closure – with 13 closure techniques and 3 anesthesia methods in your tool chest, plus medicolegal charting nuggets and too many tips-of-the-trade to count, your wound closure game will hit the next level

Regardless of your level of experience with wound closure and care, OSC will enhance your skill set in the areas of suturing, stapling, gluing, and managing simple to complex lacerations.  You will learn when to seek surgical consultation, how to deal with animal bites, when not to close a wound, and much more.

Online access makes learning and earning much easier.  OSC is a fully online, asynchronous suture training course.  This puts you in the driver’s seat for deciding when and where to enrich your practice.  It also puts the captain’s hat squarely on your brow for deciding at what pace you earn CME credit.

High-definition video makes learning very real-to-life.  Using state-of-the-art, high-definition video technology, OSC brings you right to the heart of the wound and guides you through repairs every step of the way.  You will learn, with crystal clarity, how to repair lacerations using simple interrupted, interrupted cruciate, running-locking, vertical mattress, and many more techniques.  You will learn how to tie knots correctly.  You will learn essentially everything there is to know about wound repair.
