To offer a review of whole body anatomy over one day, relevant to the junior trainee and those with surgical career aspirations, through laboratory-based topographical demonstrations and discussion of pre-dissected cadaveric material.

  • To provide access to real human tissue for revision, trouble-shooting and consolidation of anatomical knowledge;
  • To review the overall framework and key anatomical principles underlying the whole body;
  • To demonstrate the important musculoskeletal, neurovascular and visceral components within each area of the body;
  • To focus on key areas of regional anatomy relevant to clinical examinations and common procedures.

After attending the course, foundation doctors should be able to:

  • Describe the general anatomical layout of the whole body;
  • Describe the clinically-relevant structural contents and 3D relationships within each area of the body;
  • Apply normal regional anatomy knowledge to clinical examinations and common procedures;
  • Identify relevant areas of weaker knowledge for future self-directed learning (e.g. in preparation for post-graduate assessments).
