Incision Academy is a fast-growing surgical e-learning platform from Amsterdam, accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands Today, Incision announced they have welcomed medical professionals from more than 100 British medical institutions to their surgical learning platform, as a result of their recent entry in the UK market. With the aim to uphold the relevancy of their platform, the surgical e-learning platform has granted free access to their essential COVID-19 learning modules. Research among Dutch theatre nurses showed that 78% do not feel well-informed about what is expected from them in a COVID-19 ward. A shocking 71% says they lack the skills to support.

The high completion rate for Incision’s online COVID-19 courses suggests that there is a need to prepare for the COVID-19 ward. The most popular course is Intramuscular injection, with over 13,000 certificates granted.

We are really proud that we can contribute in the shared battle to fight the virus.

– Kim Taylor, Marketing Director at Incision

  • Becoming the first online learning platform to receive the Surgical Centre Accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons in England.
  • Achieving the milestone of 500 surgical e-learning courses on the Incision Academy for medical students, residents, nurse anesthetists, and theatre nurses.
