Snow Disrupts Hospital Services, but anatomy teaching gets off to a flying start

The snow seems to have not brought University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) to a complete halt this week. Snow has lead to disruptions of some medical student teaching however the vast majority of students were able to attend Professor Abrahams work with plastinated specimens, a revolutionary approach to anatomy teaching over in new state of the art facilities at UHWC.

I enjoyed teaching students on the anatomy of the shoulder and the brachial plexus, although it was quite hard work for them! Teaching using specimens really brings things to life: the visualisation of structures such as the individual cords of the brachial plexus, and even nerves like the long thoracic innervating serratus anterior is actually mind blowing.

Hopefully the anatomy teaching will continue on full steam ahead, irrespective of the conditions. Whilst students can continue to revise online using blogs and other web based resources, nothing in anatomy teaching quite beats the real thing... I'm looking forward to continuing on with the anatomy tutorials in the coming weeks.
