I was fascinated by surgical education after participating in the 6th Surgical Education Summit held in Hokkaido in 2019. This is a paper of my first surgical education in two ways. First, this is the first time as a surgical training instructor in a leading position throughout the year in 2020, though I am 6th year young general surgeon. Second, I have the opportunity to manage the complete on-line suturing training (COST) in COVID-19. COST was achieved by mailing suturing kit to all student’s house and questionnaire for feedback. Since May 2020, 80 out of 92 students (87%) undergone the training and 79 students (86%) answered. We collected evaluations for the training kit (67% very satisfied, 28% satisfied, 4% neither), YouTube teaching materials (73% fully recommended, 20% almost recommended, 4% neither, 3% inappropriate) and overall satisfaction (65% very satisfied, 34% satisfied). There were many requests to solve the problems of the radio waves, voice, and image. Depending on the device, we could understand the reaction and the atmosphere of the students during the complete on-line training like a face-to-face instruction. Whether it is on-line or not, satisfying and supplementing the opinions and requests of students after class is indispensable for improving the trainings. In the questionnaire on online clinical training for 5th and 6th grade students in 2020 of Nagasaki university, we won the 1st place in the particularly good clinical departments (27 clinical departments in total, 68 answers). The COST is one of the new surgical education ways in COVID-19 and it seemes to be useful because there were many positive opinions.
