Description

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 refresher course is for senior clinicians 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 bePelvic girdle, anterior and posterior abdominal walls, inguinal canal and femoral trianglePelvic floor and perineumGastro-intestinal and urinary tracts in the pelvisReproductive tract in the pelvis and other anatomical areas relevant to Obstetrics and GynaecologyThroughout, the clinical relevance of the anatomy will be highlighted and any relevant embryology will be included.Spaces limited to a maximum of 30 participantsCPD: 6Learning objectivesBony anatomy of the pelvisAnatomy of the pelvic floor and perineumAnatomy of the gastro-intestinal and urinary tracts in the pelvisAnatomy of the reproductive tract in the pelvisThe basic embryology of the reproductive tractClinical significance relating to the anatomyWho should attend?Consultants gynaecologists and urogynaecologistsConsultants with an interest in gynaecological oncology and laparoscopySenior TraineesCourse OrganiserMr Paul Carter FRCOG, LondonHonorary Director of ConferencesMr Philip Toozs-Hobson FRCOG, BirminghamHonorary Deputy Director of ConferencesMr Andrew Sizer FRCOG, Shrewsbury
