In this course, students will explore cadaver specimens and digital technologies used by Stanford medical students as they prepare for careers in the health sciences and by surgeons in the treatment and care of patients. Though cadaver specimens are the foundation of instruction at Stanford, digital resources such as the Anatomage 3D Virtual Anatomy Dissection Table and 3D interactive anatomy apps provide students and practitioners with data for visualizing the spatial relationships between anatomical structures and the full extent of specific anatomy that may be difficult to explore on a cadaver. Ultimately, this approach leads to a better understanding of anatomy and improved patient care. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures and common clinical conditions affecting the thorax (the area of the body between the neck and the abdomen) and chest wall. Students will also observe, on cadaver specimens, surgical procedures to treat those conditions. The course will offer students an insight into the combination of anatomy resources and imaging that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.
