England Surgical Simulation Programme 2019 - 2020

Evelyn Cambridge Surgical Training Centre, Melbourn

This programme has been mapped to the intercollegiate surgical curriculum with funding from Health Education East of England. The programme consists of seven courses that will use fresh-frozen cadaveric tissue, to simulate techniques.

Faculty from across the region will facilitate HANDS ON training for regional HIGHER Surgical Trainees, and is a fantastic opportunity for trainees to attend the Evelyn Cambridge Surgical Training Centre which is a unique facility.

This is a hands on 2-day Cadaveric Simulation course in HPB surgery suitable for higher surgical trainees.

Day 1 (Liver) Using preserved human cadavers, the candidates will be taught to:

  • Mobilise the liver
  • Carry out hepatic hilar dissection
  • Remove the liver preserving the inferior vena cava
  • Split the liver along its principal plane and also carry out a hepaticojejunostomy.

Day 2 (Pancreas) Using preserved human cadavers, the candidates will be taught to carry out:

  • Pancreaticoduodenectomy
  • Distal pancreatectomy + Splenectomy
  • Retroperitoneal dissection of the aorta, coeliac axis and superior mesenteric artery.

There will be 4 cadavers available each day for dissection and a total of 8 candidates will work in pairs with one faculty member per cadaver.

This course is for East of England trainees only.
