Dissection Course - Soft Embalmed Cadaver

Location: Humber College North Campus, Toronto, Canada
Date: August 13-17, 2018, 8:30am-4:30pm

We show you how to use a scalpel, and then its a guided / supervised “choose your own adventure” on a soft embalmed cadaver. Humber college August 13-17 (M-F). $3000.00 for 5 days.  Each student will have the opportunity to investigate areas of their own clinical interest.  Instructors will ensure feasible, efficient and safe dissections.  One soft embalmed cadaver will be dissected by each group (of four to six).

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.
