ANAT 801 Educational Development

This course will give graduate students the opportunity to enhance their general anatomical knowledge and explore in greater detail areas of the body that were covered only superficially in previous coursework. This course will enable students to enter their fields of interest prepared to effectively teach pertinent concepts and applied anatomy  in that field, as well as allow students to prepare a body of work with educational value for future students by developing educational materials through dissection or other media forms, such as computer or medical imaging. Students will learn various techniques involved in the preparation of cadaveric material for display and teaching, including dry bone/ligamentous preps, plastic embedding, and various plastination procedures.
