The Basic Surgical Skills (BSS) Course is designed to introduce surgical trainees to safe surgical practice utilizing demonstrations and hands-on skills-stations that emphasize proper surgical techniques. It sets the standard for safe, basic surgical techniques common to all forms of surgery including safe abdominal incision and excision of lesions, the suturing of skin, bowel and blood vessels, and tying of knots, handling sutures and surgical instruments. The practical stations involve the use of surgical instruments on animal tissue models.

The Basic Surgical Skills (BSS) Course has been implemented by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, in cooperation with Juzoor for Health & Social Development and in partnership with Palestinian Medical Council, Augusta Victoria Hospital, Nobel Medical Supplies, British Council.  The course has been funded by Arab Fund and managed by Taawon.
