    The best way is to find a drug rep from johnson and johnson. Check with the surgery department, they should know the drug rep. The company will mail kits to the school.

    thanks, but I know there is a company, that if you go to their website, they will send you one for free. Just me, not my school! :) I just can't remember which company. Does anyone else?

    Practice kits would be good to have. I was trying to tie knots with an OB/Gyn the other day and he kept going on about how I was "all thumbs" and how I tied like a "future psychiatrist". :rolleyes:

    You're probably thinking of Ethicon's practice kit. You can get their knot tying manual for free (download it off their site) but I'm not sure they sell the kit anymore. I suppose e-mailing them wouldn't hurt.

    Here's a link to the Ethicon Knot Tying Manual site
