Waiting list

  • Please Note

    The closing date for this event is 14th November 2019.

    This 2 day cadaver course provides intense hands-on practical training in upper and lower gastrointestinal surgery for surgical trainees.

    The course leads each trainee into the background principles of each operation using short lectures on operative technique, that are then reinforced by hands on cadaveric experience in small groups.

    The faculty includes colorectal and upper gastrointestinal surgeons, allowing the trainee easy interaction to maximise their learning opportunities. In addition, a clinical anatomist may 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 view the course.

    Providing hands on experience using fresh frozen cadaveric material, this 2 day course will include:

    Day 1

    • Laparoscopic appendicectomy
    • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and cholangiogram
    • Laparoscopic hernia
    • Laparoscopic perforated duodenal ulcer

    • Introduction for staplers
