Surgical Anatomy


Widespread opinion amongst medical and surgical consultants, as well as published literature, suggests inadequate retained knowledge of applied anatomy by junior doctors after graduation.

So, this course will introduce the student and junior doctors a specific knowledge to build, describe and explain the anatomical facts for the major surgical presentation in the clinic.

The aim will be to ensure that candidates assimilate knowledge of the applied anatomy that will be required for a surgical career including sound three dimensional knowledge of the anatomy relevant to surgical practice and to the major imaging methods. The course will ensure that sufficient knowledge of applied surgical embryology is acquired to allow understanding of common congenital abnormalities and acquire basic knowledge of the normal microscopic structure of tissues and organs.

The course discusses the anatomical basis of the following clinical presentations:

  1. Neck lump
  2. Dysphagia
  3. Breast lump
  4. I.T bleeding
  5. Groin swelling
  6. Scrotal swelling

  1. To improve junior medical staff anatomical expertise and performance by raising their knowledge of anatomy.
  2. To enhance junior medical staff opportunity for vocational training acceptance.
  3. Be able to demonstrate knowledge of surgically and medically relevant topographical anatomy.
  4. Identify marked structures and their anatomical relations in images.
  5. Correlate anatomical structures with radiological images.
