Each JDocs: Anatomy workshop session based at CTEC at The University of Western Australia aims to assist Western Australian-based prevocational doctors in the consolidation of clinically relevant anatomy knowledge.  The series is co-convened by a number of senior consultants with support from expert faculty.  Anatomical pro-sections are utilised to enhance proficiency and confidence in surgical anatomy.

"Enthusiastic presenters who are highly knowledgeable with excellent clinical experience. "
"(The prosections) are an excellent way to consolidate textbook and virtual anatomy review."
"(I liked) that the in-depth discussion, small group nature (of the Anatomy session) meant we spent more time on less understood topics."
"(The pro-sections) were fantastic for 3D orientation and understanding of anatomy."
