The purpose of this study was to describe the animal thoracic training program for the thoracic surgery at the laboratory animal facilities
The training was provided for 78 surgical students under the direction of thoracic medical specialists. Students attended lectures and then performed venipuncture, injection, intubation, tracheostomy, surgical cut-down, and thoracic and abdominal surgical approaches. We estimated the detailed surgical skills in two groups (67 residents and 11 thoracic fellows).
All students demonstrated satisfactory impressions after training. We found significant difference between the skills of residents and fellows with regard to the haemostasis and suturing techniques.
Wet-lab training for thoracic surgery at the laboratory animal facilities is useful for surgical residents and thoracic fellows.
