Description
This elective is designed for fourth year medical students who want to perform cadaver dissection to renew their knowledge of human gross anatomy. A region or organ system for dissection will be selected, with input from the course director, based on the student's interest. In the past student enrollees have determined that they will specialize in surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, or ear, nose and throat. Cost to the student is based on the region to be dissected. The fee is transferred to the Body Donor Program to help defray the cost of preparing the cadaver for dissection.
