Why choose this course?

Firstly, unlike many dissection courses, this course teaches you in-depth anatomical knowledge required for passing postgraduate exams. Secondly, the course highlights clinically relevant anatomy, showing you key clinical and surgical correlations. Thirdly, the course will help you understand how the various interconnected spaces in the head and neck are related and allow you to see how neurovascular structures pass through these regions. Most importantly, the course aims to develop your spatial awareness and allow you to visualize the anatomy in your mind’s eye.

Who is this course aimed for

This course is primarily aimed at those revising anatomy for the following exams: Membership and Fellowship of the Royal College Of Surgeons (MRCS & FRCS), the Diploma in Otolaryngology (DO-HNS) and the Diploma in Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology (DDMFR). The course is also suitable for students and allied health professionals, who are looking to develop a deeper understanding of head & neck clinical anatomy.
