In the same manner that we consider ourselves safe drivers, yet probably wouldn’t pass a driving test, tomorrow, most surgeons consider themselves competent at surgery but would they pass an anatomy test, tomorrow? The aim of this one day course is to become reacquainted with the detailed anatomy of the human body as it relates to the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology.
This will take place through a mixture of revision lectures followed by practical sessions in the Dissecting Room where use will be made of cadavers, prosections and models. The day will begin with a ‘spot test’ requiring identification of anatomical structures marked with a pin. This test will be repeated at the conclusion of the course to confirm progress.
The 4 anatomical areas to be covered will be
- Pelvic girdle, anterior and posterior abdominal walls, inguinal canal and femoral triangle
- Pelvic floor and perineum
- Gastro-intestinal and urinary tracts in the pelvis
- Reproductive tract in the pelvis and other anatomical areas relevant to Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Throughout, the clinical relevance of the anatomy will be highlighted and any relevant embryology will be included.
Spaces limited to a maximum of 30 participants
- Bony anatomy of the pelvis
- Anatomy of the pelvic floor and perineum
- Anatomy of the gastro-intestinal and urinary tracts in the pelvis
- Anatomy of the reproductive tract in the pelvis
- The basic embryology of the reproductive tract
- Clinical significance relating to the anatomy
