Human Gross Anatomy Tour - At UTCOM Gross Anatomy Lab
There is truly no better way to learn the marvels of human anatomy than by studying a human body. Medical Students will provide an anatomy tour in the UTCOM Gross Anatomy Lab, where your students will be able to view real cadavers, isolated organs, and plastinated specimens. If your class would like to review a specific system/organ (ie - digestive, brain, etc...) we can arrange this if you let us know ahead of time. This is a remarkable opportunity to both inspire your students and allow them to see human anatomy in its truest form.
