The University Center of Surgical Anatomy (UCCHA) was founded at the Faculty of Medicine at Masaryk University in 2006. The main goal of the center is to educate undergraduate, postgraduate students, and medical professionals who require knowledge and orientation regarding human body interventions (e.g. traumatology, surgery, orthopedics, otorhinolaryngology, and other fields of invasive medicine). In collaboration with the Educational center of Practical Anatomy , UCCHA organizes courses practicing surgical and non-invasive techniques. The theoretical and practical part of the courses takes place in the premises of the Department of Anatomy of the Medical Faculty at Masaryk University, which has four dissecting rooms with an audiovisual circuit and lecture rooms.
The head of the University Center of Surgical Anatomy is the head of the Department of Anatomy doc. MUDr. Marek Joukal, Ph.D.
