Whether you are a life-long learner who would like to broaden your knowledge and skills, or high school or college student who wants a hands-on, inside look at medical school, the NEOMED Anatomy Academy offers a fun and challenging experience working along experts in the field in state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities. This is a low stakes learning opportunity for individuals currently, or aspiring to be, in the health professions.

The NEOMED Anatomy Academy features daily morning programming that includes foundational anatomy lectures, small group discussions and case-based clinical vignettes that engage students in understanding the core concepts of human anatomy.

Each afternoon, students actively participate in the dissection of human cadavers, imaging lab sessions, viewing harvested cadaveric brains, spinal cords and organs of the abdominopelvic cavities. Students will also have the opportunity to learn basic suturing techniques.

All sessions are taught by Dana Peterson, Ph.D., an award-winning, nationally-renowned professor of anatomy and neurobiology at NEOMED with assistance from students in the University’s College of Medicine.
