Thank you to all our members and donors for supporting us for since 1999.
absolutely not true. Granted I never payed attention in lab, never dissected, and never cared to go half the time............and i did well in anatomy so the learning part is up to you.TSisk23 said:
The entire anatomy department is very good.Doc 2b said:All I can say about the Anatomy dept. Is they are the bomb. Dr. Marriassy stayed late on Thur with some of us to help us study. There is not one that will not stay and answer any of your questions. Dr. Conover our director of anatomy is one of the best lectures I have ever had.
Karina said:Yeah, there are 10 people/cadaver. Divided into 2 groups. One group dissects one day, and the other dissects the other and then we share with eachother at the end of each lab. I currently work with 4 other people in my cadaver.
And it is true...I find it that most of the time is purely just picking fat, so I roam around the lab, and find an older cadaver that has already been dissected...
Anatomy lab is kind of overrated...yeah, it's kind of fun...but I just use my atlas and go look at the stuff a few times before the practical

Old_Mil said:Actually, this is a benefit. As others have said, gross anatomy lab is a complete waste of time. It would be of significant benefit to both the schools and students if all schools went to prosected cadavers - or made dissection an elective. So the more people per cadaver, the less you actually have to do, and the more time you'll have to actually learn it.
I (and others have echoed this) learn very little during the dissection. The only real way to get through anatomy is to sit down with an Atlas and textbook outside of lab and class and hope you learn the material well enough that despite the variability in cadavers you can successfully identify 70% or more of the structures.
Robz said:I think I am amazed that people are still in total groups..last year people started skipping midyear. I had the best anatomy group so we all just chilled and did our work. It was easier in my opinion to do the fat and junk with more people. Later in the semester some skipped or showed up later. If I missed a lab I went back later that night or weekend and made sure I knew what I missed. The lab is open late and is there for your work as well.
