Solving Clinical problems with anatomical solutions.

Our body donors, to whom we owe so much, provide an invaluable resource. As anatomists, not only can we fulfil the wishes of these wonderful people, we can also assist our medical colleagues in advancing clinical research, surgical training, and medical education. The main theme of this conference is to explore how we as anatomists are helping our clinical colleagues to solve clinical problems. Speakers, both anatomists and clinicians, will be presenting the novel and interesting ways they have been working together to advance clinical knowledge in several specialty fields, and how they have been developing cadaveric models to simulate scenarios as similar as possible to those found in the live patient. The cadaveric model also allows 

development and trial of medical devices, as well as practice in the growing field of personalised medicine. The education component of the conference will consider postgraduate training using cadaveric material.

The conference will be held at Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee, 75 Old Hawkhill, Dundee. DD1 5EN

An art exhibition by Jac Saorsa will be open throughout the conference.
