This course allows students to hone their dissection expertise, as well as their academic and three-dimensional understanding of a particular body area through detailed cadaveric dissection.
Students will produce prosections for the department while gaining a chance to learn a particular region of the body in great and professional-level detail, well beyond that covered in the standard anatomy course. Project topics focus on four regions: head and neck; back and thorax; extremities; and abdomen, pelvis, and perineum. Each regional dissection will be limited to the appropriate area and will be a complete dissection of all the structures within the topic area, either through one or a series of dissections. Each project will be researched, dissected, and presented to the faculty and peers of students involved.
