The aim of this work was to offer a guide to young students and medical doctors that want to learn the bases of neck dissection. In the summer of 2017 a group of students from the University of Palermo that had already passed the Human Anatomy exams took a 4 weeks dissection course at the University of Malta Medicine is a science that requires both a practical and theoretical approach, and the last one, unfortunately, often is not valued by our University. Studying Human Anatomy, which is the basis for a doctor's education, exclusively through books and atlases, is indeed partially lacking. For this reason a group of students from the University of Palermo have been selected, based on their academic scores and English proficiency, to take part in an anatomic dissection course at the University of Malta. The course took place in the university's dissection hall. The students spent their time dissecting, analyzing and separating the various anatomical structures under the supervision of tutors from both universities. This experience has given excellent results and we hope to make further collaborations with the University of Malta in the future.
