The UCO have once again teamed up with world-renowned expert, Dr David Parry to deliver a unique course specialising in anatomy and pathology.

The day will consist of a morning introduction and overview lecture of the topics.  After lunch we spend two hours in the dissecting room, with cadavers, looking at and considering anatomy related to the subject.
