Originally from Malaysia Miss Othman moved to Scotland in 2009 to study medicine at The University of Edinburgh. She had wanted to become a surgeon since she was 7 years old. Only while observing her Consultant Neurosurgeon operate on the brain to excise a meningioma during medical school was her aspiration truly solidified. After graduating in 2014 she worked as a Foundation Doctor in Perth and Dundee before becoming a Core Surgical Trainee in Aberdeen. She is currently working as a Surgical Trainee Registrar in West Scotland with the aim to specialise in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery.

Why Learn Surgery Online

Learning surgery can be daunting, frustrating and overwhelming – no matter what year of medical school or level of training one might be. I had personally struggled with the subject of anatomy and pathology throughout medical school and it became more apparent while studying for MRCS. It took me years to finally establish an effective studying method that suited my studying needs. Not only that, I also realized that there are very few reliable resources and surgical courses that wont cost a fortune!

That is how I came up with the idea of Learn Surgery Online – an online resource suited for medical students, Foundation Doctors and Core Trainees. The contents have been tailored to the syllabus of the intercollegiate Membership Examination of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons. The aim would be to break down complicated subjects into smaller comprehensible points. My team and I at Learn Surgery Online are continuously updating and adding new topics, courses and quizzes to ensure our website is as comprehensive as possible. We welcome all your feedback and suggestions. Hope you will find our website useful. Good Luck!
