Anatomy Laboratory

Cadavers for dissection are made available through The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

Residents and staff meet once per week for ten consecutive weeks to cover the individual components of the musculoskeletal system (i.e., spine, shoulder, hip and thigh, knee and calf, foot and ankle, etc.).

The educational process involves prosection by the assigned junior and senior residents who act as a team covering the osteology and gross anatomy dissection in the laboratory. Each anatomic dissection is supervised by an assigned staff faculty member who has specific expertise in this area.
