Bruce B. Fogel, Sakti Srivastava
This course is the first in a four-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.

Completion of this workshop qualifies participants for the “Advanced Discovering Anatomy” workshop offered through the Division of Clinical Anatomy on Wednesday, November 13. For more information and to register: click here.

This course is the first in a series on human anatomy titled “An Introduction to Anatomy at the Stanford School of Medicine.” Each course focuses on a different area—the upper limb (Fall 2019), the abdomen (Winter 2020), the lower limb (Spring 2020), and cranial sports injuries (Summer 2020). While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.
