    Is it true that there are dissection opportunities organised by the surgical society?

    thanks

    I wish I could claim that was true. But I cant.

    Yes they do.
    There's a surgeon attached to peninsula in Truro who will teach dissection. Also you can go to Bristol in the summer to do dissection.
    Also the surgical society arranges a lot of extra lectures and stuff ... they seem to be very active.

    There is a pathologist in truro that will let you watch post mortems. They are organised by the students themselves, not by the society.

    We talking about Rob Marshall? Yeah, he takes groups of students I believe, not sure how much hands on they actually get though.

    That said I do agree that dissection doesn't seem hugely useful. Maybe if it helps some people memorise anatomy but I have done dissections at Nottingham and obviously seen a lot of surgery and a cadaver is just nothing like a living human body at all.

    So you don't actually think it's any more useful then?

    Yeah not really, I really didn't learn a lot from it, if you are die hard surgeon and can only learn visually but keep in mind that a cadaver is very different from a living body then perhaps it will help you memorise your anatomy but that's it really.

    It is incredibly expensive to run a dissection service and so Peninsula never bothered to set one up, in fact Nottingham are considering dropping theirs.
