ABSET, known as ASSET (Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma) in the USA, is a surgical skills course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons. First introduced in Australia / Aotearoa New Zealand, the course uses human cadavers to teach key surgical exposures in the neck, chest, abdomen pelvis, and both upper and lower extremities of anatomic structures that, when injured, may pose a threat to life or limb. This one-day course covers each anatomic section, beginning with a case-based overview followed by a hands-on exposure guided by the faculty. Each participant assesses his/her ability to perform each exposure independently and is evaluated on knowledge and technical skills. Audience: Senior surgical registrars, surgical fellows and any surgeons who wish to review their anatomy skills. 

This workshop is suitable for Surgical Consultants and SET 4 Trainees and above.
