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, zSpace, the Oculus Rift, 3D interactive anatomy apps, digital diagnostic imaging, and stereo images. 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.

Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for Credit or a Letter Grade.

Completion of this workshop qualifies participants for the Advanced Discovering Anatomy workshop on November 9. (This workshop will be administered by the School of Medicine, not Continuing Studies). For more information and to register, please click here.
