Gross Anatomy and Embryology

Among the requisites for modern practice of medicine is a broad based knowledge of human anatomy. This course is designed to provide medical student’s with clinically oriented learning experiences to help understand structural and functional relations of organs and systems. Through large group instruction, small group discussion and experiences of a variety of diagnostic imaging platforms, the gross structure and embryology of the human is explored. Students participate in a comprehensive cadaveric dissection, in which each student participates in the dissection of an entire human body.
