In South Africa, forensic pathologists and anthropologist are increasingly requested to analyse and interpret bone trauma from skeletonized remains in a medico-legal setting, but many professionals remain hesitant or unsure how to adequately address skeletal trauma. If you have experienced difficulties in interpreting broken bones from decomposed or skeletonized remains in your practice, or are interested in learning more about the analysis and interpretation of bone fractures, then the members of the Forensic Anthropology Research Centre (FARC) would like to invite you to a five-day short course in the analysis and interpretation of bone trauma in the Department of Anatomy at the University of Pretoria from 10 to 14 September, 2018.
