Mastering Fundamentals of Skin Laceration Repair

February 6, 2019 Wednesday, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM


This informative seminar will cover all options of skin laceration repair including sutures, tissue adhesives, staples, and skin closure tape. Students will be given ample practice time to master techniques and gain the confidence to perform procedures in a clinical or remote setting. 

This class is taught by Jason Jarvis, a former U.S. Army Special Forces Medic with years of accumulated experience as an austere primary care practitioner in resource-poor areas such as Burma and Afghanistan. Based in Seattle, he is currently a traveling medical educator for various organizations across four continents, including the NATO Special Operations Combat Medic Course held in Germany. Besides surgical technique and austere medicine, Jason has a keen interest in tropical medicine, with a published article on malaria, and he will be running a malaria microscopy workshop at next year’s SOMSA conference n North Carolina. When Jason happens to be in the Pacific Standard Time zone, he also teaches ACLS and ACLS renewal classes for CPR Seattle.
