The Anatomy of Complications Workshop (ACW)

Cork, Republic of Ireland.

31st August - 1st September 2018

Dear Colleague, 

We are very proud to announce The Anatomy of Complications Workshop (ACW) is coming to the Northern Hemisphere for the first time since its inception in 2000 and will take place in Cork on the 31st August and 1st of September 2018. This is as a result of collaboration between The Anatomy of Complications Workshop directors, the Clinical Training and Evaluation Centre (CTEC) at The University of Western Australia and the ASSERT Centre in Cork.

This world recognized resource was conceived and developed by Prof Ian Hammond (Gynaecological Oncologist) and Dr John Taylor (Urologist) in association with Prof Paul McMenamin (Anatomist) in Perth, Australia. The objective of the course is to enhance the understanding of the anatomy of the pelvis and improve management and prevention of surgical complications. It is aimed at Consultant Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and senior residents.

The workshop consists of four integrated modules: -

  1. Anatomy (2) Surgical Skills (3) Cadaveric Surgery and (4) Case Presentation.

A key component is the low delegate to faculty ratio, to ensure this the numbers are strictly limited. Due to the overwhelming success of this course places are heavily oversubscribed, we therefore recommend you register your interest as soon as possible by completing the following form: -
