SCSK 512 Gross Anatomy Special Dissection

Kathleen Bubb, MD
Michael Snosek, MSc

This one-term two-credit course will give participants the opportunity to undertake detailed, professional-quality dissections of the human body. The ultimate objective is to allow students to dissect specific regions and/or organs of the human body in order to create “museum quality” specimens for teaching purposes. In so doing, students will learn the various techniques involved in the preparation of cadaveric material for display and teaching. These include dry bone/ligamentous preps, plastic embedding, and various plastination procedures. Ultimately, the students’ overall knowledge of anatomy will be enhanced.
