University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM) has developed a simulated surgery workshop using a novel whole body fresh frozen cadaveric model to enhance the operative surgical training for the Core Surgical Trainees in a safe environment.UHSM piloted a series of Cadaveric Surgical Skills Workshops as a part of the Better Training Better Care (BTBC) programme initiative which aimed to develop sustainable and adoptable models to maximise learning opportunities in the time available for training.These multi-professional surgical workshops allow Core Surgical Trainees (CSTs) to develop skills in a safe environment which could be transferred to the clinical setting. It also allows trainees to receive constructive feedback on their performance from consultant trainers.
