The Anatomy of Surgical Exposure Course

The Anatomy of Surgical Exposure Course is run by James Cook University in association with The Cairns Surgical Society and Queensland Health.

This cadaver-based dissection course instructs surgical trainees and junior surgeons in the techniques of exposure commonly used in open surgical operations. It will be held in the modern anatomy laboratories at the Smithfield campus, under the supervision of experienced surgeons.

This is not primarily an anatomy teaching course; therefore a high degree of anatomical knowledge will be required for successful completion and candidates will be expected to perform procedures. A manual will be available to all registrants for pre-reading.

The curriculum will focus on open general surgery, emphasising emergency and trauma situations. Candidates will be assisted with dissections and assessed on technical ability (knot tying, suture ligation, dissection and anastomosis), anatomical knowledge, and teamwork. The assessments will be based on Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills (OSATS). These are marked during the course and used at the final debriefing exercise.

*Please be aware that this workshop may be cancelled, depending on Queensland Government Covid-restrictions at the time of the event. We strongly recommend that the impact of potential cancellations is taken into account for any travel or accommodations bookings, as well as any quarantine requirements that may be in place in your region.
