West Midlands Surgical Training Centre at UHCW

The West Midlands Surgical Training Centre is located within the main University Hospital building to provide comprehensive simulation of a real operating environment and deliver medical, educational and instructional teaching.

It is one of only a handful of UK medical training facilities to have been granted a Human Tissue Authority licence that allows trainee surgeons to practise on cadaveric material, providing them with what lecturers say is a far more realistic operating experience than they would get via more conventional practice on models.
