Welcome to Surgery 101, a series of podcasts produced with the help of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The podcasts are intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We've aimed to cover a single topic in between 10-20 minutes so that you can quickly get a good idea of the basic concepts involved. Every episode is divided into chapters and concludes with several key points to summarize the topic. We are always keen to receive your feedback on our podcasts, and we are accepting suggestions for additional topics. New episodes are published every Friday. 'Surgery 101' was created by Dr Parveen Boora and Dr Jonathan White, and is supported by the Department of Surgery at the University of Alberta. Our 2010 series of podcasts are brought to you by the Undergrad Surgery Mobile Podcasting Studio Team which is: Jonathan, Jenni and Tracy, with the assistance of the Surgery 101 Experts of Edmonton. Note to experts: please note that these podcasts are only intended as brief introductions for medical students - we cannot delve into the more complex nuances of advanced surgery in a 10-minute podcast. We encourage all listeners to supplement their learning by seeing patients, assisting at surgeries and reading widely!

Customer Reviews

Surgery 101

Surgery 101 is a great resource for medical students on general surgery service.


I really like the information but the sound effects are really distracting and could be dispensed with.

Great for any med student

I listen to this podcast in between lectures or study breaks as a way to keep the massive amount of material in Year 1 of med school in perspective. It's nice to think that all of the information in the books will be applied, and this podcast gives a good idea of what to expect in the coming years. It would be great to have some tips for the early 1st/2nd year students to help prepare for rotations (either surgical or in general).

I also agree the music throughout at times can be a bit harsh.

All things considered, this is possibly the best podcast for medical students!
