An independent study course that aims to provide graduate students with the knowledge of gross anatomy necessary for postgraduate teaching, Graduate Gross Anatomy goes beyond the level attained in the Human Gross and Developmental Anatomy (ANAT 550) course and includes historical perspectives and anatomical variation. Students will be responsible for preparing full-body prosection following the same sequence as the dissection in Human Gross and Developmental Anatomy. The prosection will be used as a teaching specimen for current ANAT 550 students. Students will work under the supervision of a full-time member of the department. Students will be responsible for assigned readings for the area prosected and will be evaluated by oral examination periodically. The course will be taken the term immediately following the completion of Human Gross and Developmental Anatomy.
