What will I get out of it?
Each University has it's own unique qualities. To be allowed access to anatomy labs at any University is a really humbling experience. Thousands of our countries leading doctors and surgeons have had their anatomy training at these labs. You will have unique access to these facilities and be taught and guided by lab technicians supplied by both Keele and King's College as well as Mike (Keele and KCL) and Keith (KCL) who are both experienced manual therapy practitioners and University Lecturers.
How does the day run?
We take a maximum of 24 students and split them in to two groups. Each group will be assigned a technician and they will guide you through an explanation of the prosected specimens (This is not a dissection workshop - the cadavers are already prepared)
We start the day at 10am and you will need to arrive at 9.30am at the steps of the medical school (KCL) and the car park of the School of Medicine (Keele)
What will we see? The quality of the specimens that you see can differ in each visit. Typically we will be able to access and view the following structures:
Full lower limb and upper limb (including all muscles, bones, joints), thorax, viscera, spinal column, nerves of the upper and lower extremity, head and neck. There are also many specimens around the lab that are kept in jars and these are excellent for being able to observe the specific areas in 360 degrees.
