Casting Workshop

On May 26, 2009 ten first and second years participated in a casting workshop lead by Dr. Andre, an orthopedic surgeon. He first showed students the various materials used in casting and demonstrated the proper wrapping techniques while explaining the theory behind casting certain fractures. We then went into the casting room in the ER of Soroka and participated in making one arm cast and two legs casts on eager student volunteers. Dr. Andre smiled broadly when he turned on the saw to show us how to remove the casts, and the student volunteers generously allowed their fellow students to practice using the saw to remove their leg casts.
