Research Summary

Two colleagues and I have developed what we feel is a novel and very efficient way of teaching Gross Anatomy Dissection that really optimizes allotted curriculum laboratory time, specialized lab faculty, available cadaver material, and student sharing of information. Our method concentrates on allowing students to explore pre-exposed and pre-sectioned cadavers following a unique system of body layers, reducing the needs for a detailed dissection manual and intensive rote memorization. We have written a paper detailing this technique that we plan to have published in the near future.
