Overview

##

You will be introduced to the human abdomen and its many complex structures through stimulating discussions on common surgical scenarios and current research. Each week, we will focus on a specific area of the abdomen; starting at the anterior abdominal wall and be able to detail the anatomy of numerous organs including the stomach and liver. Specialists will come together to compare and discuss contrasting surgical techniques. This will help you to apply your understanding of basic anatomy to common clinical scenarios and introduce you to research being undertaken at the University of Leeds.

This course is for anyone that is interested in the human body and specifically the inner workings of the abdomen. We will assume a very basic level of anatomical knowledge. By completing all aspects of the course you will have achieved 14 hours of CPD time.

Gave a very thorough grounding to the subject. There was a lot of detail which was new to myself and this contributed to making the course a lot more difficult for me to understand.

I am glad to have worked on the course and will come back again to it when I have done other more simple courses. The use of the plastic manikin was beneficial, as was the drawings onto your assistant Jamie and the diagrams.

I specifically had difficulties throughout the course on access to the 'Advanced notes' which my system refused to access. I need to do a bit more research into You tube to see if I can access parallel notes.

Other than these few points, I thought it was a great course and have walked away feeling that I have learnt a little bit more about the complexities of the human body.

James completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
James is an excellent educator. His videos and explanations are clear and concise. It is very easy to follow along with the course. The content discussed is informative and exceptionally well delivered so that any person of any expertise in the field, or none at all, can easily understand. The clinical application sections at the end of each week put the week in context and enhance the learning further. As a medical school applicant it will hopefully help my application and first experiences of anatomy in medical school. Strongly recommend. Put down whatever you are doing now and sign up. Yes, you. The one reading this review. Do it.
