National and International Teaching/Lecturing FELLOWSHIPS in Hand Surgery
Visitors/Observers/Fellows are welcome to join the practice at Circle Hospital in Bath.
These would generally be senior Trainees in Hand Surgery, but more junior trainees from the level of medical student are considered for briefer periods. Hand Therapists are also welcome to observe clinics and theatre lists.
This attachment is particularly open, and suitable, to those in the final stages of training in Hand Surgery – preference is given to those in preparation for FRCS (Plast), FRCS (Orth), or the BSSH Diploma in Hand Surgery. The period can be shared with other units in the same region, such as the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford.
Interested individuals should contact Mr Sammut for information on requirements and vacancy.
INFORMAL TUTORIALS are conducted on a regular basis for senior trainees, preparing for FRCS (Plast), FRCS (Orth) and the BSSH Diploma in Hand Surgery, outside of the Fellowship attachments. These are not listed. Nor are Departmental and regional teaching meetings.
Interested individuals should contact Mr Sammut directly.

UPPER LIMB ANATOMY DISSECTION COURSE
COVID 19 – The restrictions, self distancing and travel limitations have thrown the viability of this cadaveric course into uncertainty. The tentative plan is for this course to happen during 2021 but one is unsure whether this will be feasible. The format of the course involves groups of participants with a senior teacher around a table and cadaver limbs. For the present this would seem unlikely to happen. Please send expressions of interest which will be recorded and you will be amongst the first to be informed of developments
Two day Course of dissection performed by prosectors – Consisting of:
1. Film presentation of dissection
2. Multiple dissection sessions on fresh cadaver specimens, prosected, and demonstrated, by Hand Surgeons.
3. Surface anatomy demonstration on live model.
The course was founded by Donald Sammut and David Evans and launched at Windsor Hand Clinic,
It has been held continuously since 1996, and is currently held at the Vesalius Centre, Bristol.
Faculty Pool: David EVANS, Henk GIELE, Donald SAMMUT, Lorenzo GARAGNANI., Vikram Devaraj, Simon KAY, Carlos HERAS-PALOU, Sam GIDWANI, Wee Lam
