This Hand Dissection course is highly interactive and hands-on. We will use so-called ‘fresh frozen’ (fore)arms which means that the specimens are unprepared. The cadaver arms are well preserved and closely simulate the clinical situation. This is beneficial as it enables the participants to expand their in-depth understanding of hand and wrist anatomy.

The participants will work in doubles on a forearm and will dissect themselves so it will be a full day of practical skills sessions.

The day will be tutored by a hand surgeons from VU Medical Centre Amsterdam, and two teachers of the hand Academy.


After completion of the course you will have greater knowledge and understanding in the field of functional anatomy of the forearm, wrist and hand.
