Full-body dissection course - www.idissect.ca Posted February 5, 2019.*

August 12-16 2019
Humber College
Toronto, ON

August 12-16, 2019 Humber College North Campus.

$3000.00. 5 days. 5 spots. $500 deposit.

Investigate areas of your own clinical interest!  Instructors will ensure feasible, efficient and safe dissections.

Develop practical dissections skills, anatomical knowledge, and a comprehensive three dimensional understanding of the human body.

Soft-embalmed cadavers retain the natural tissue integrity, tissue texture, and preserves joint range of motion. They simulate the fresh state where the liquids are still intact within the tissues while allowing for ease of exploratory dissection. This course is a unique opportunity to practice clinical palpation and mobilization techniques on cadavers that look and feel the same way as a live patient’s body. These learning experiences are expected to directly improve therapeutic outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • To correlate what is seen clinically and what can be observed in the dissection lab.
  • To increase knowledge of neuro-anatomical structures
  • To understand the three dimensional organization of fascial planes and anatomical relationships.
  • To recognize the anatomical structures and explain the physiological functions of body systems.
