Update from Professor David Sinclair, Professor of Anatomy:

I am very pleased to report that the College has invested in the anatomy resource, developed by microsurgeon and clinical anatomist Dr Robert Acland FRCS, as a benefit for all College Fellows, Members and Affiliates.

This dynamic online training resource will be of particular benefit to Affiliates studying for the MRCS examination, especially those with restricted access to anatomy specimens. The filming technique used provides a very helpful three-dimensional perspective of real anatomical specimens. This allows users to focus in on the structures and movements they are studying. Intelligent search and navigation tools make it easy to find the content needed to learn, revise or review.

In addition to being an excellent learning resource for trainees, will also be beneficial to Fellows and Members, both as a very useful practical revision resource and also as a powerful training and teaching tool.
