Upper Limb Course

Program Dates

August 7-11, 2023

The 2023 Upper Limb Course hosted by Stanford Clinical Anatomy invites beginner students of anatomy to explore the upper limb through a comprehensive lecture series, cadaveric dissection labs, and virtual demonstration. Students will have the unique opportunity to be taught by Stanford School of Medicine faculty members and teaching assistants, and use Stanford's state of the art facilities. Lectures will focus on clinical correlates and the musculoskeletal system, with emphasis on joints and movements of the upper limb. Labs will feature in-depth dissections by students, with guidance from faculty, and demonstration of anatomy on pre-dissected specimen.

Upon registration, students will be sent an information packet detailing lab rules, and preparation recommended to be completed prior to the start of the course. For any questions related to the course, please email anatomy@stanford.edu.
