I passed with a good grade the first term of Edinburgh University online Anatomical Sciences course and I am delighted! This news has come, perhaps appropriately enough, while I am attending the Anatomical Society winter meeting in Dundee, where I am showing some of my anatomical drawings, paintings and wax sculptures. The talks at the conference are interesting and inspiring and it is great to be able to show and talk about my work to so many like minded people.
Some talks linked anatomy and surgical procedure, which for me is fascinating as over the last few years, as part of the art and medicine projects I carry out, I have attended various operations as an observer. Below are some sketches I made while attending a procedure carried out by Mr Frank Wells, consultant cardiothoracic surgeon at Papworth Hospital.
Now back to preparing for the second term of the course!
