This unique learning opportunity is designed for individuals looking to expand their anatomy knowledge and dissection skills, or for those who have never had the opportunity to dissect a human cadaver. It is ideal for those taking a gap year or for health professionals seeking an anatomy refresher.

This course will focus on dissection of the upper and lower extremities. If time permits and the specimens are available, there may be an opportunity for a back dissection as well.

Each day will include an average of 5 hours of hands-on group dissection (4-5 participants to each cadaver), and approximately 60 minutes of review and discussion.
