Designed to foster within our clientele a greater sense of confidence in human anatomy and dissection procedures, the International Clinical Dissection Program allows participants to develop a thorough knowledge of anatomy with clinically-oriented exposure. The program not only provides more technical, hands-on dissection experiences not easily accessible, but also offers fantastic networking opportunities and inter-professional exposure.
By the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate a higher competency of dissection skills
- Be able to illustrate and explain anatomical concepts
- Correlate anatomical structure to clinical practice
Instruction: The dissection sections will be overseen by our team of professors, senior medical students/residents and retired surgeons to enhance the personal support of the participants. Seminars will be given by specialists in the seminar topic.
