In 2021 this JDocs offering was presented as a series of workshop sessions convened over six Saturdays from May to June. 2022 dates will be released in the near future. WA based Junior Doctors are welcome to register interest for the 2022 JDocs: Anatomy session series below.

Each three hour 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.

"Very knowledgeable faculty."
"The small group sizes, well organised topics per station, very knowledgeable faculty and structured style for each station worked very well. "
"It was very beneficial to see the anatomical pro-sections in 'real life' rather than reading a text book."
