Invite you to join
The Anatomy of Surgical Exposure Course
Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017
James Cook University, Cairns Campus, Queensland

The objective of this cadaver based dissection course is to instruct surgical trainees and younger surgeons in the techniques of exposure commonly used in open surgical operations. As this is not primarily an anatomy teaching course, a high degree of anatomical knowledge will be required for successful completion. Candidates will be expected to “do” the procedures, and a manual and course DVD will be available to all registrants for pre-reading. The course will be held in the modern anatomy laboratories in the Cairns campus of James Cook University.

This course is accredited by The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.


The course is open to a maximum of 20 participants. There will be two candidates allocated to each of 10 stations, and there will be a faculty of experienced surgeons in attendance to supervise. Each station will have two candidates allocated to a cadaver, a tutor and an RN.

The course fee of $3000 includes a course manual and DVD, instruments, welcome reception, formal dinner and attendance at the course.
