For EMS and Medical Professionals
UTHealth Medical School hosts
the Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma Course (ASSET) and the use
of the resuscitative balloon occlusion of the aortal technique (REBOA) in the
Texas Medical Center for attending faculty, fellows, visiting physicians and
residents. The ASSET course uses human cadavers to teach surgical exposure of
anatomic structures that, when injured, may pose a threat to life or limb.
The ASSET course was created and is maintained by the American College
of Surgeons and has been a popular addition to UTHealth Medical School’s didactic
curriculum. Contact Deanna Congdon for more information.
