I recently listened to a podcast about space travel to Mars and beyond which sparked my curiosity into just how surgery in space might be performed. I researched a little bit and didn't really find too much about the subject other than it would probably be a horrible experience for not only the patient but the surgeon as well. But with long distance space exploration at our doorstep I feel like this might be a good subject to educate myself with. Anybody have any insights they want to offer or forums to point me towards? NASA has a 4th year med student rotation that looked promising and I know NASA has some sort of surgical training for doctors but other than aerospace residencies what else is there?
