UHCW is one of the largest and busiest NHS University Teaching Trusts in the country. We have a large new hospital, a fine Clinical Sciences Building, a state of the art Surgical Training Centre and an enthusiasm for medical education. We have an exciting partnership with Warwick Medical School which is based in one of the UK’s foremost universities, to combine excellence in teaching and research with the highest quality medical education across a range of innovative programmes.

The The Surgical Training Center includes:

  • a surgical room with eight operating theatres.
  • a briefing room and lecture theatre for up to 30 participants.
  • changing facilities.
  • storage for cadaveric material, plastinates, and surgical equipment.

The West Midlands Surgical Training Centre is located in the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. The facility operates according to the Human Tissue Authority code of practice and is licensed for the use of human tissue for surgical training and anatomy, and future plans for a whole body donation programme.

The large surgical room is set up with eight operating stations, each one simulating a self-contained operating theatre. Every station includes a bespoke mobile operating table with electric height adjustment, integrated fluid drainage, and interchangeable radiolucent table tops for different types of surgery.

Operating lights, video cameras and flat screen monitors are mounted over the tables. On the wall at each station is a ‘stack’ with arthroscopic cameras, light sources, shavers and power tools. Each station has multiple power sockets, data ports, an adjustable pressure water supply, suction and free drainage. At the front of the room is a large teaching screen for presentations or to view video from any of the stations. This – or any other video feed – can also be shown on repeater screens arranged around the room. The principal instructor can use audio enhancement with a hands-free microphone, and manage presentations, video feeds or a video conference with a wireless control while moving around the room. A two-way AV link to the adjacent lecture room, operating theatres and the internet allows fully flexible integrated programmes and even virtual presence for distant trainees or course delegates.

Warwick Medical School is the first in the UK to be equipped with plastinated specimens for anatomy teaching. The School secured £500,000 funding from the Strategic Health Authority to purchase the educational specimens from Gunther von Hagen’s laboratory in Germany.

Dr von Hagens’ plastination technique involves removing body fat and water and impregnating a polymer to preserve the body or body part. The preservation is of the highest quality, so that they can be used for medical education and surgical training.

Visiting Warwickshire:

Stratford Upon Avon

Shakespeare fans will relish the chance to walk in the bard’s footsteps: visit the timbered home where he was born at Shakespeare’s Birthplace; explore the house where he courted his wife at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, and pay your respects at his final resting place in the Holy Trinity Church.

Another popular attraction for anyone on the Shakespeare trail is Mary Arden’s Farm. The family home of Shakespeare’s mother, the traditional house is now a working museum where you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of a Tudor farm, as it would have been in his mother’s day.

Enjoy a play in the Swan Theatre’s traditional Elizabethan stage where the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Company perform.

Coombe Abbey

The hotel is set in the tranquil Warwickshire countryside. With 500 acres of parkland, formal gardens and a peaceful lake, you can explore the outdoors and then retire to our restaurant, bar or relax back in your bedchamber.

We’re within easy reach of key M1 and M6 motorways and transport links, as well as being just a short distance from Birmingham, Warwick, and Stratford Upon Avon.

Experience a touch of something different, with candlelit corridors, mediaeval entertainment, four-poster beds, individually designed bedchambers, and more. With 119 rooms and wedding, conference and banqueting facilities, you can stay with us for a relaxing weekend away or celebrate the most special of occasions.

Originally founded as an abbey in the 12th century, our historical buildings have had an interesting life. The Abbey was surrendered to King Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries, and the future Queen Elizabeth I even lived here as a child. Our hotel is truly unique, and staying with us means you get a real sense of history. You wouldn’t expect any less from former royal residence.

Kenilworth Castle

The vast medieval fortress of Kenilworth Castle is one of the largest historic visitor attractions in the West Midlands and one of the most spectacular castle ruins in England. Set in vast ground in Warwickshire, Kenilworth is the perfect place for the whole family to go exploring and play king of the castle.

Kenilworth is best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I. Once boasting the finest architecture in Elizabethan England, you can still imagine the ornate palace Dudley created for his Queen in Kenilworth’s magnificent ruins today.

The authentically recreated Elizabethan Garden, an exhibition dedicated to Elizabeth’s visits to Kenilworth, and the castle’s very own costumed Queen promenading the grounds at events throughout the year really bring this romantic royal story to life.
