Tonight the students were treated to a concert at The Byre Theatre in St Andrews, by famous international pianists, Worbey and Farrell. Worbey and Farrell are famous for their musical acrobatics, turning much loved orchestral pieces into duets for two hands on one piano. The students were treated to arrangements of Bohemian Rhapsody, excerpts from Saint-Saëns’ ‘Carnival of The Animals’, and the world premiere of their special arrangement of ‘The Warsaw Concerto’. After the performance, the duo were keen to talk to the students, and share stories about performing all over the world.
The anatomy major students studied the surface anatomy of the abdomen this morning, and explored the position of organs in relation to anatomical landmarks by drawing on each other. As always, much fun was had, and the actual position of some of the organs caused a lot of surprises in class!

Today members of our three clans competed in a sandcastle building competition on East Sands. All the groups battled the weather, changing tides and giant mythical beasts (dogs who tried to plough down their foundations). Luckily, all groups reigned supreme, producing admirable architecture worthy of any national prize!

In our combined Anatomy and Medicine class, led by Dr Predrag and Larissa, our students identified and dissected animal thoracic viscera. They then performed simple interrupted suturing skills. Not always a pleasant experience, but a vital part of medicinal training.
