Surgery Students don’t have the Ability to Stitch Patients Anymore

Roger Kneebone, professor of surgical education revealed that young people have spent so much time on the screen and so little using their hands that they no longer have the skills to stitch patients. He added that students now have so little experience of craft skills that they struggle with anything practical. This is now becoming an important issue as most of the people that leave these colleges can have high grades but are still not able to cut or sew. Surgeons say they will continue teaching those skills as people are getting “less competent and less confident”
