Full Body Musculoskeletal Sculpture Course
In person course, Birmingham
“As a medical student and later as a surgical registrar, I found myself frustrated trying to understand practical anatomy from textbooks and drawings. Learning a 3D structure from 2D images just didn’t allow me to learn what I needed. That all changed when I started sculpting. It has completely altered my confidence in theatre and in clinical practice”.
Tom Pidgeon, Course Lead
• Learn in-depth whole body anatomy (up to FRCS level) using sculpture
• Use sculpture tools and wax to build a whole human body musculoskeletelal system in intricate detail
• Course convened, taught and supervised by senior plastic surgeons
• Badged by BAPRAS for 2023
This course is unique, there is no similar course like it that we have found for surgeons nor anatomists. Your anatomy knowledge and confidence in clinical practice will improve after attending. Feedback from prior delegates has been resoundingly positive (see Testimonials). No prior sculpting experience is needed, but you will still use your manual dexterity skills. Yes, you can keep the beautiful sculpture you create as a permanent learning aid to take home on its display mount. You will be instructed by experienced surgeons and will receive a step by step guidebook.
What anatomy can I expect to learn?
Over the three day whole body musculoskeletal course, you will be guided through the process of sculpting all muscles of the human body locomotor system; pelvic floor, rotator cuff, lower limb muscles and their arrangement at the pelvis, abdominal wall and posterior thorax. In addition you will better appreciate the contour of the human form and the aesthetic associated with it and how it affects clinical cosmetic decision making.
Who is it for?
This course is suitable for SHOs, registrars and fellowship candidates (medical students and consultants have also taken part previously).
Can I attend remotely or from abroad?
At the present time this course requires in person attendance. In the future we intend to introduce a virtual course, where we’ll post you a full sculpture kit in advance, including the skeleton, wax, tools and neurovascular structures for you to build at home.
