1- I advice to give each candidate a Manuel or instruction paper what he need to do during the dissection lab. Especially for the cadaver station (which can be a reference for us when we go back home). 2- To have senior instructor to assist the cadaver direction with each group of directors. 3- To have fresh cadavers for all the stations. 4- Improve the quality of food for the lunch break. 5- I stayed in the Mercurr Cathedral which is 20 minutes walk to the venue, however in your site it's written 5 minutes. 6- if possible to keep a map of the location of the venue in the web site to make it reachable to every one
