On Saturday 8th April, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton, in association with The Anatomical Society of Great Britain and Ireland hosted its fifth National Undergraduate Neuroanatomy Competition.

One hundred and nine medical students from across the UK and Ireland attended the one-day conference that was designed to inspire and enhance the knowledge and skills of budding neurologists, psychiatrists and neurosurgeons. Taking place at University Hospital Southampton, competitors sat both a multiple choice paper and a neuroanatomy spotter.

The overall winner was Alexander Sheeka from Southampton, obtaining the highest score ever recorded at the competition. We were honoured to have with us special guest speakers Professor Zoltan Molnar (University of Oxford) and Professor Karen Morrison (University of Southampton) who gave exhilarating talks in the afternoon.

This year’s event was led by final year medical student, Simon McElligott, who worked with a dedicated team of students, faculty staff and clinicians. The competition has continued to grow, attracting an increasing number of attendees each year.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported and helped the event become a success particularly The Centre for Learning Anatomical Sciences, The Anatomical Society, Thieme and Wolters Kluwer.
