Cadaveric courses aim to close the gap between the anatomic knowledge and practical practice. 
Twenty five participants attended a three day workshop from 23rd-25th September 2019 covering surgical approaches in orthopaedics and complex fracture fixation. The target group being orthopaedic surgeons, general surgeons and residents, the main aim of the course was to equip learners with the skills to perform the basic surgical exposures in orthopaedics. The course covered approaches to the hip, acetabulum, femur, knee & tibia, foot & ankle, shoulder, humerus, forearm, hand, cervical spine, thoracic spine, and lumbosacral spine.
