2023 Annual Cadaver Lab in Centennial, Colorado

Another exciting session at Colorado, organized by Dr. Shea and hosted by Allosource. We had a great group of students and faculty from Stanford, other universities, and medical groups in attendance. Over the years we have received several feedback from attendees that these sessions have helped them better understand anatomy and is a great tool for collaboration, camaraderie, and scholarship. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
