On Friday, June 3rd and Saturday, June 4th, the USC Roski Eye Institute hosted “The Cutting Edge: The USC Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Surgical Skills Course”. Unlike many surgical courses that use videos or medical devices to simulate the surgical experience, The Cutting Edge allows those in attendance to operate on fresh human tissue. The approach provides a valuable learning environment for attendees, who get a better feel for real tissue and build muscle memory while operating.  Due to its unique teaching methods, The Cutting Edge is attended by physicians, fellows, and residents from around the world.
