Introduction to the university protocol, and brief workshop on noticing and engaging with students in distress. Facilitated by the Health & Wellness Centre.
Medical surgeons need to hone their skills prior to performing high-risk surgical procedures on fetuses in utero and on newborns. To date, highly representational 3-dimensional fetal models, that have life-like physical properties, do not exist. The goal of our research project is to create a series of accurate and responsive fetal models to help surgeons visualize the complex physiology of a newly developing fetus and their associated pathologies. These models will provide surgeons with the visual and tactile information necessary to confidently implement highly complicated fetal surgical procedures.
