The BSSH Anatomy Dissection Course is included in the BSSH Educational Programme. This course is held in the Vesalius Clinical Training Centre at the University of Bristol over a weekend.
The course, created in 1996 by Donald Sammut and David Evans in Windsor, is structured around 5 sessions of dissection performed by senior Hand Surgeons. Each session consists of prosection of fresh cadaver limbs and a running tutorial demonstrating the anatomy, including applied anatomy, surgical application, incisions, approaches etc. Each table consists of small groups of participants who are able to assist the prosection, handle the tissue, question and discuss.
Each day starts with a revision film of the territory to be dissected that day, with live commentary (Donald Sammut).
The final session, on the second day, consists of a demonstration, on a live model, of tests of function, and of surface anatomy of the upper limb (Henk Giele).
A course dinner will be held on Friday evening, the cost of which is included in the registration fee.
The course is open to all levels of surgeon and to Hand Therapists. Other specialists and surgeons from outside the UK are invited to apply.
Places are limited to 35 and allocated on a first come, first served basis irrespective of grade of applicant and can only be secured with full payment.
