    ANATOMY LAB can any current students comment?

    Advertisements



    Hey guys ( thats for current students)
    I was wondering how many "cadavers" are there in anatomy lab, I heard there's barely 2 torsos and 5 or so legs and arms. Also, I know that the Fall class that I'm in is very large ( 150+), so I can imagine the disaster that we're going to have, I just hope there will be enough space for all of us.
    Also, I spoke to a current student and they told me that specimens are very stiff and difficult to work with. Can anyone comment?

    lab

    in my time with the anat lab there has never been a lack of specimens for students. how it works is the anat lab will be broken up so that there are under 50 students per lab. within the lab the students will be broken up into groups. these groups will work together on the specimens. some groups will have different anatomy parts then others, when your group feel comfortable with the part, you can rotate to a different part. it sounds a lil weird, but it works out just fine. dont worry about lack of specimens or the bodies, they work great in what you need to get done.

    anatomy

    I both took anatomy and was a TA for anatomy at SMU and I never saw an instance of lack of time with the cadavers. There were 6 or seven torsos last year and there were more acquired after I left. If anything the cadavers are not used enough - many times noone would show up during the optional lab times, presumably because they had sufficient time during regular lab time. The great benefit of the prepared cadavers is that there is no time spent on the dissection - you start learning the structures right away.

    anatomy

    That is way tooo easy!!! Where is the joy and fun in doing the actual cutting and finding the structures that you need and smelling like dead bodies by the end of the day? 8)

    SOME ADVICE ON ANATOMY

    Get the Color Atlas of Anatomy ISBN 0683304925 This is the older version get the new, but the old is very much like the new. Also get Clinical Anatomy by Moore. Look on Amazon.com. However, I think the school is planning to use the Moore as the main text, so check before you buy etc.

    Good luck

    netter

    do you think netter would be efficient enough, or do we have to get the other two required by the school? Thanks
