    I was accepted to a number of great schools but I must admit, I was mostly impressed with DMU. I'm sending in my deposit this week to hold my spot but before I do, could any of you expound upon the anatomy facilities? Clean? Stinky? How many per cadaver? A and B day rotations? They didn't allow us to see it during our tour. Just curious because you spend so much time in the anatomy lab, it is an important factor in my decision. Thanks ladies/gents, I look forward to meeting you next fall!! :thumbup: I'm excited!! :D :horns:

    jbone,

    The anatomy facilities will be upgraded next year when they expand the anatomy labs. I would say that for the most part the labs are as clean as cadaver labs can be, but there is always going to be that stench of embalming fluid. That is why you are required to wear a lab coat and suggested to wear scrubs. I am finishing up anatomy a week from Wed.

    Four people to a cadaver per lab (two per side). There are two lab groups dissecting on alternating days which works out perfectly b/c I find that I don't learn all that much dissecting b/c you are just trying to finish and get things cleaned up. If you are worried about not being there for all the dissection, don't be! The first 20+ minutes of each lab are spent by the professor reviewing (projected to TV's all around the lab).

    I think I got everything, but if you have any more questions...let me know. I'm a first year so I am intimately familiar with those labs.

    I am a 1st year at DMU. The anatomy dept is great. 4 students per cadaver, very little in the way of smells, well ventilated, very approachable faculty. You spend from 2 to 4 hours per week in lab (more if you want.). Worst part of anatomy is are all those 2nd and 3rd order questions in both written and practicle exams.
