A surgical anatomy course which took place in September of last year has received excellent reviews from its participants, reports 'Surgeon's News'. The course, held in the Anatomy Suite, catered for senior medical students and aimed to increase awareness of the important links between anatomy and surgical practice.

The course was led by David Sinclair, Professor of Anatomy, Michael Silva, Regional Surgical Advisor for Oxfordshire and DPAG's Thomas Cosker, Director of Anatomy.

Surgeon's News, the award-winning magazine for Fellows, Members, Associates and Affiliates of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh has more details on the content of the course on page 50, available here. They report very positive feedback following the session, including:

"It was excellent to have such good demonstrators talk through cases and anatomy in such small groups."

"This was one of the most enjoyable surgical workshops that I have ever attended."
