Venue: Clinical Anatomy Skills Centre, University of Glasgow
Now in its fifth year, this two day cadaveric course cadaver course aims to give intense hands on practical training in upper and lower gastrointestinal surgery to surgical trainees.
This course leads each trainee into the background principles of each operation using short lectures on operative technique that are then reinforced by hands on experience with a maximum of two delegates per cadaver. The operations performed are flexible depending on individuals’ requirements.
The faculty is comprised predominately of consultant colorectal and upper gastrointestinal surgeons allowing the trainee easy interaction to maximise their learning opportunities. In addition, a clinical anatomist will be on hand to explain the anatomical principles behind each operation.
The course is aimed at ST3-6 level and delegates should have completed a BaSiCS course or have a letter of support from their programme director that they are at an appropriate state in their training for this course.
There is also opportunity for a small number of ST1 and ST2 level delegates to observe the course.
Providing hands on experience using fresh frozen cadaveric material, this 2 day course will include:
• Laparoscopic appendicectomy
• Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and cholangiogram
• Laparoscopic hernia
• Laparoscopic perforated duodenal ulcer
• Introduction for staplers
