Clinical Anatomy - Gastrointestinal System
The HYMS York Surgsoc held its first talk of the Clinical Anatomy series on 3rd February 2014. It was on the gastrointestinal tract and was given by Miss Nala Sivarajasingham a surgeon at the York Hospital. Though the talk did not go into great detail on the anatomy and physiology aspects, it did give a lot of information on the clinical aspect and pathology of the GI tract. This was found especially helpful and intriguing to the year 3s and 4s who were actively involved in the Q&As, which ran alongside the talk. Overall, it was an insightful evening, which left stomachs rumbling and students waiting for the next talk of the series.
