Basic Suture Training Workshop


Welcome to the Wild World of Wound Closure with this outstanding 8 hour suturing workshop located in Chicago, Tampa, or Dallas!

This course brings high-end content in an affordable package with content typically reserved only for the most advanced of learners but does not require any experience for you to attend!

Taught by Dr. Tony Romeo, this course and its two day version, the Comprehensive Suture Training Workshop are very commonly used stepping stone to help healthcare professionals successfully transition into the RNFA program with NIFA (the National Institute of First Assisting, Inc which is the most commonly underwent RNFA program in the US) for their hands-on skills workshops, as the curriculum taught is consistent with the training used in their workshop for that precise purpose. As well, this course provides a developed and thorough approach to suturing that will explain WHY and HOW to decide on different types, duration, and location of sutures, which most courses barely address.

Bottom line: you will leave with a new appreciation of suturing regardless of your experience, and absolutely none is required to attend this amazing course!

Also consider the Online-Only option of this course if you are unable to come to the course live! The online version includes access to 1:1 virtual office hours with our expert instructors via ZOOM as well as 80+ videos to follow along with to learn at your own pace.
