Hands on Anatomy Review

The Human Anatomy Outreach program at Wilfrid Laurier University, offers individuals the opportunity to learn about the human body in a university laboratory setting. Special to Laurier is the chance to learn in the first synthetic human cadaver laboratory in Canada.

These cadavers are composed of plant-based plastics and water, which avoids harsh chemicals and smells, but gives a realistic feel and look. We will be covering the skeletal, musculature, cardiovasculature, and nervous systems; starting at the pelvis and continuing inferiorly towards the feet.

The day will be split into four regional sessions. Each session will start with a pre-lab talk and will be followed by independent learning time. This is where you will have an opportunity to go through the material on your own with the help of the coordinators and several volunteers. By the end of the day, you should be confident in naming boney markings, identifying major blood vessels and nerves, and identify musculature along with understanding their innervation, blood supply, and actions.
