This unit will provide an introduction to the process of undertaking a research study in surgery. Students will identify a key question, or series of questions, relating to a specific aspect of human anatomy of their choosing. They will then either carry out an extensive review of the anatomical literature, or undertake a more limited review of the literature and collect a limited amount of anatomical data, either through dissection or through observation in the operating theatre, thus extending the understanding of the area through critical evaluation and interpretation. The final output will be a dissertation, detailing the findings of this research and articulating its significance to the surgeon. Other assessment tasks in the unit are designed to align with, and contribute to, the achievement of this endpoint.
