Announcement of Ninth Cadaveric Course:  19th–20th August: Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (Saturday-Sunday) |  27th August: Orthopaedics All Insice ACL & Meniscal Repair (Sunday) |  1st – 2nd September: Spine Open (Friday-Saturday) 
For Registration

Cadaver based skills learning courses have been now recognized as the best way to impart training to medical students and trained medical professionals.
The ACSST has been established with the aim to impart basic and advanced training of surgical or other interventional skills related to patient care required by the medical professionals as life saving measures or otherwise.
ACSST is aimed to be established with the high end equipment and latest technology available for such training across the world. Courses will be
organized at regular intervals for the training of medical professionals of various disciplines.
The cadavers received at ACSST shall be preserved using the indigenous Theils Technology, the knowledge about which was inculcated during my academic visit at Department of Anatomy University of Dundee, Scotland UK as a part of training as Commonwealth Academic Fellow. I must acknowledge Dr Eisma Roos for her work in this area. She was kind enough to give me insight in this aspect.
We will also acknowledging the contribution of the departed souls who have been donating their whole body to the medical institution for the advancement of medical education.
We aim to move forward with research projects and international collaborations, keeping the high standards of training of medical professionals at minimal cost.

Cadaveric dissection is excellent method for learning anatomy.  The surgeons mostly refine their anatomy knowledge by conducting operations in patients. Learning anatomy is a never-ending subject and the surgeons need finer detail of anatomy because of narrow access to the operative area, difficult mauves and the consequences of a mistake. The surgeon must know what is there in each corner of the body cavity. This is especially true for neurosurgery where the surgical access routes are narrow, the brain, spinal cord with surrounding structures cannot be moved, and the consequences of a minor error in surgery is devastating. The cadaveric laboratory in AIIMS is doing a good and great job. It will help all surgeons conducting endoscopic and other surgeries.

The ACSST was established with the aim to impart training to surgeon across the country and abroad. ACSST matches the high end equipment and latest technology available in such facilities across the world.  There will be courses at regular intervals in several specialities including Neurosurgery, Spine, Orthopaedic, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine and Anaesthesiology.

The cadavers will be of those unknown or unattended patient attending the Trauma Centre casualty who died despite every treatment and whose bodies are still unclaimed after 72 hours of their death.
The cadavers provided to the ACSST are specially preserved using the indigenous technology. With this technology the cadaver will remain as soft and lively as the original patients, thereby giving the real hands on feel to the operating surgeon.  In the near future, using this technology, we aim to impart training for laparoscopic surgical procedure also advances in toxicology exams and DNA analysis. As, the adoption of imaging techniques such as multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have established the virtual autopsy as a method of analysis to facilitate autopsy procedures we also explore the area of autopsy.
