Safety in a hospital setting is of utmost importance! The current statistics show that a patient has about a 1 in 10 chance of acquiring a hospital-acquired infection after admission. This is of immense concern to especially the surgical patient who may be compromised or even die from a surgical site infection.

Sterility is a non-compromise word, and a good Sterility and Aseptic Technique Course and Kit has been a void in the armamentarium of training staff at the medical, medical professional, and healthcare training institutions. The Apprentice Doctor® Sterility and Aseptic Technique Course and the associated Scrub for surgery kit fill a significant void.

Setting up sterile instruments and an orthopedic surgical procedure
Our upgraded kits has simulation surgical gown packed in “sterile” drapes. The gown has cuffs and a sterile hand-over tag for tying the gown at the back without compromising sterility.
Saving lives is more about performing important routines (like hand hygiene) without exception and to perfection – rather than major surgical procedures (for instance).
The Apprentice Corporation trusts that you will have a great time learning and gaining critical medical and surgical skills.
