There are fine lines in surgery where life and death decisions have to be made at the end of a scalpel. The James B. Coakley Medal for Dissection in honour of a former Professor of Anatomy at UCD is awarded for the best dissection of a given body part.

James B. Coakley was Professor of Anatomy and Head of the Department of Human Anatomy at University College Dublin from 1962 – 1988.  To honour his distinguished career and dedication to anatomy teaching, the James B.
