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 relationship between anatomical structures and the full extent of specific anatomy that may be difficult to explore on the cadaver. Ultimately, this leads to a better understanding of anatomy and improves patient care. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures and common clinical conditions affecting the ankle and foot, such as bunions and plantar fasciitis. Students will also observe surgical procedures performed on cadaver specimens to correct these conditions. The course offers students an insight into the combination of anatomical resources and imaging that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

This course is the first in a series on the clinical application of human anatomy. Each course focuses on a different area—podiatric medicine (Fall 2022), the abdomen (Winter 2023), the urinary system (Spring 2023), and the brain (Summer 2023). While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.

Adjunct Professor, Division of Clinical Anatomy, Department of Surgery, Stanford School of Medicine

Bruce Fogel develops, directs, and teaches undergraduate, medical school, and outreach courses at Stanford. He emphasizes the clinical relevance of anatomy as it pertains to the treatment of traumatic and pathological conditions.

Podiatrist; Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford School of Medicine

Jonah Mullens is a board-certified podiatric surgeon with specialties in the foot, reconstructive rearfoot, and ankle. He received his medical education at the California School of Podiatric Medicine at Samuel Merritt University.
