The discipline comprises four years training in surgical wards of virtually all type of surgical specialties. Basically the idea originated in the Western countries due to escalating economic costs of surgical procedures as a result of high prices of technical manpower hours of the surgeon’s first and second assistants who initially used to be doctors and medical graduates. The four year instruction and training equipped these surgical assistants with the necessary knowhow to act as first and second assistants to the surgeon.
This is a new surgical tier which is soon expected to be in vogue in our country in emulation of the west. Currently, most of these graduates after obtaining experience in various surgical specialties for a couple of years after graduation would find lucrative salaries in the Gulf counties. They can also enter teaching line and pursue M.Phil in surgical specialties in various countries; establishment of such further education is also in the pipeline in our own country.
