Course in surgical anatomy and cervical dissection

During this course surgical techniques are applied using a bioreactive human cadaver model in a realistic surgical setting. The teacher first provides a brief review of the procedure to be performed and gives the students a step-by-step definition. The students are then required to perform these same techniques on an animal bioreactive and on anatomical parts of human origin.
