EHS Education

EHS engage in partnerships with various organisations and companies to support the development and accessibility of high quality online education in hernia surgery.

Some materials are available free of charge, others are included in the EHS membership benefits. 


Part of the charitable activity of the Society, BJS Academy is an online educational resource for current and future surgeons.

The Academy is comprised of five distinct sections: Continuing surgical education, Young BJS, Cutting edge, Scientific surgery and Surgical news. 

Although the majority of this is open access, additional content is available to BJS subscribers and strategic partners.

The incision films are non-industry sponsored and created by expert surgeons (members of EHS) according to the “Step by Step” methodology.

The site includes a collection of Hernia films including Lichtenstein (different types, local, scrotal), Shouldice and Milos operation for Ventral Hernia.
Tests and anatomy films are also available.

The films can be a great help in teaching/learning Basic Hernia Surgery. The films are available via the Incision Academy site. If you are not a EHS member, you can pay for access. If you are a member of the EHS, you can log in free of charge via your ‘EHS members area‘.
