Date: 25th February 2012

Venue: School of Biosciences, Cardiff University


Taught by practicing surgeons, this highly interactive event will feature focus-group workshops and individual demonstrations complemented by interactive lectures in surgical anatomy. The workshops will use imaginative artwork in identifying important surface anatomy landmarks and the underlying structures on live human models. Students will also be taught common surgical approaches, and more importantly, structures you will be asked in the operating theatre!

Surgical anatomy pertinent to the following specialties will be covered:
  1. Cardiothoracic Surgery
  2. General Surgery
  3. Head and Neck Surgery
  4. Orthopaedic Surgery
  5. Plastic Surgery
  6. Vascular Surgery

Places are limited to 24 and will be offered on a ‘first-come-first served’ basis.
