Abstract

Surgery 101 is a series of podcasts intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We aim to cover a single topic in 15-20 minutes so that learners can quickly grasp the basic concepts relating to a common surgical problem. Learning objectives are provided for each episode; episodes are divided into chapters and conclude with several key points to summarize the topic. To date, 31 episodes have been released, and new episodes are added every Friday. Surgery 101 episodes 11-20 are included in this resource.
