University to host the British Association of Clinical Anatomists’ (BACA) Winter Scientific Meeting alongside new programme launch
The University of Liverpool will be hosting the British Association of Clinical Anatomists’ (BACA) Winter Scientific Meeting 2022 in December.
Dr Alistair Bond outlined the significance of this event:
We are delighted to be able to host the British Association of Clinical Anatomists in the Human Anatomy Resource Centre. This will bring together anatomists and clinicians from across the UK and beyond to discuss advances in the field. It is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our vibrant, renowned, ever-growing department, and the timing is especially exciting given that we are launching our new PGCert Clinical Anatomy with Education in the new year.”
The meeting will include talks from two speakers:
• Prof Lyndon Mason, Trauma and Orthopaedic Consultant, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be discussing Ankle fractures in a talk titled "Ankle fractures, a journey to better outcomes".
• Mr Andrew Schache, Reader in Head & Neck Surgery and Hon. Consultant Head & Neck Surgeon, University of Liverpool and Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will give a talk titled "Surgeons who only learn anatomy from books should only operate on books".
