This course is the first in a three-quarter series on human anatomy designed to give students an overview of the anatomy of the human body as taught to undergraduates and medical students at Stanford. In this hands-on workshop, students will explore the latest digital technologies that medical students use to prepare for a future in the health sciences and surgeons use to prepare for treatment. These include Bassett stereo images, the Anatomage 3D anatomy table, virtual reality and 3D interactive anatomy apps, and digital diagnostic visualization systems. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures on human cadavers and some common clinical conditions affecting the shoulder, arm, and hand (upper limb). Students will also observe surgical procedures being performed on cadavers to correct these conditions. The workshop will offer students a rare introduction into 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 make learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

This course is the first in a series on human anatomy entitled “An Introduction to Anatomy at the Stanford School of Medicine.” Each course will focus 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.

Grade restriction: NGR only; no credit/letter grade.

Completion of this workshop qualifies participants for the “Advanced Discovering Anatomy” workshop on Wednesday, November 8, 2017. This advanced workshop is offered through the Stanford School of Medicine. For more information, see the course page.
