Bruce B. Fogel, Azeem Lakha
In this hands-on workshop, students will explore the latest digital technologies that medical students are using to prepare for a future in the health sciences and surgeons are using to prepare for treatment. These include the Anatomage 3D anatomy table, 3D interactive anatomy apps, digital diagnostic visualization systems, and stereo images. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures on human cadavers and some common clinical conditions affecting the oral cavity. Students will also observe surgical procedures, such as placement of dental implants on a cadaver to replace missing or extracted teeth. The workshop will offer students a rare introduction to the advancements in 3D and stereoscopic visualization of human anatomy and will give students an insight into the combination of imaging technology and cadaver specimens that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

Please note: The instructor list for this course has changed from what appears in the print catalogue. Dr. Azeem Lakha, an oral/maxillofacial surgeon, will be joining the course as a co-instructor.

Grade restriction: NGR only; no credit/letter grade. Completion of this workshop qualifies participants for the “Advanced Discovering Anatomy” workshop on Wednesday, May 30, 2018, offered through the Division of Clinical Anatomy. For more information and to register, click here.

This course is the fourth in a series on human anatomy titled “An Introduction to Anatomy at the Stanford School of Medicine.” Each course focuses on a different area of human anatomy—the upper limb (Fall 2017), the abdomen (Winter 2018), the lower limb (Spring 2018), and the oral cavity (Spring 2018). While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.
