In the News... Surgery Students ‘losing dexterity to stitch patients’

In a recent article, the BBC reports that surgery students are arriving to medical school without the manual dexterity to stitch or sew up patients. Roger Kneebone, professor of surgical education at Imperial College, London says ‘young people need to have a more well rounded education, including creative and artistic subjects, where they learn to use their hands’. We imagine that Professor Kneebone would be happy with the Waldorf High School curriculum. We not only offer Practical Arts such as Knitting and Bookbinding, that directly strengthen manual dexterity, but the creative arts are infused throughout our curriculum.
