The majority of conditions requiring surgical intervention can be diagnosed and treated in primary care – if the general practitioner has the skills and confidence to do so.

The Professional Certificate of Clinical Procedures provides the clinician with intermediate level knowledge including the ability to understand and manage a variety of common problems that require office-based surgical intervention, such as foreign body removal, lacerations, sebaceous cysts and ingrown toenails.

In this module, Assistant Professor Maurice Brygel discusses some of the major nail conditions, including subungual hematomas and a variety of paronychia cases, in the short video below.

I can highly recommend this course. It was a highly practical and well organised program. The procedures were thoroughly discussed and very useful for improving certain practical skills and applicable in daily practice, and there was plenty of opportunity to practice the skills taught.
