Educational

Each month surgeons from various surgical specialties are invited to demonstrate a particular surgical procedure on a cadaver in the meds anatomy lab on the Western University campus.  The emphasis is on the anatomical approach of a given procedure as well as what the surgeons expectations are of medical students in terms of their anatomy knowledge. These sessions are a great way for students to gain an appreciation of what surgery is about, as well they provide students the opportunity to consolidate the anatomy they learn in lecture in a surgical context.
