Anatomical Principles of Surgery (ANAT 510)

Students in ANAT 510 summer 2022I co-direct this course with Dr. Eddy Davidson, and it debuted in the summer of 2022. The goal is for students to learn how anatomic relationships and considerations affect surgical decision-making. It meets once per week during the eight-week summer session, with each week focusing on a different surgical specialty. These include plastic, general, vascular, neurological, urological, orthopedic, and head and neck surgery (otolaryngology). Students build on their pre-existing knowledge of human anatomy and learn through a combination of framing lectures and cadaveric surgical simulations directed by clinical surgical faculty. Graduate students must have taken Multimodal Human Anatomy (ANAT 401) or Gross Anatomy (ANAT 411) to enroll in this course. Medical students are eligible to take the course as an elective if there is space (it is capped at 16 students). For additional details, check out the most recent syllabus.
