Wolfson Surgical Skills Centre and Lumley Newman Demonstration Rooms

The Wolfson Surgical Skills Centre is one of the UK's largest cadaveric dissection facilities and is equipped with nine dissection tables to use embalmed and unembalmed cadavers to simulate the operating conditions of a modern hospital.


This state-of the-art room includes:

  • Specially designed dissection tables with integrated services to accommodate up to 36 participants
  • State-of-the-art audio visual facilities with each dissecting table provided with a mounted screen for close-up viewing of procedures
  • Large wall mounted plasma screen to facilitate links to other lecture areas in the College, or externally to other national or international venues
  • Licensed under the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) to supply cadaveric material

In addition there are two demonstration rooms, Lumley and Newman, ideally suited for courses teaching procedures on smaller organs, such as head and neck anatomy.

RCS Education has a team of highly trained technicians to provide advice and expertise and support the setting up and running of courses and events.
