Special 2-Day Neuromusculoskeletal Cadaver Anatomy Course

Dates TBA

Course Description

This cadaver anatomy course is designed for clinicians who evaluate the neuromusculoskeletal system, electrophysiological examinations and ultrasonographic examination. The course will provide an in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body through the prosected specimens. Participants will have the opportunity to examine and identify various structures of the neuromusculoskeletal system, including muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and vessels. Emphasis will be placed on the practical application of this knowledge in the clinical setting, allowing participants to better understand and evaluate patients with neuromusculoskeletal disorders. The course will include hands-on laboratory sessions to get in-depth review of anatomy and opportunity to visualize ultrasound guided procedures including EMG needle guidance and ultrasound anatomy. Students will learn to identify and understand the complex interactions between bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments that allow for movement and support of the body. Upon completion of the course, participants will have a deeper understanding of the anatomy of the neuromusculoskeletal system and improved ability to evaluate patients with related disorders.

Course Objectives

At the end of Module, course participants will be able to:

  • Comprehensively understand the anatomy of the neuromusculoskeletal system through detailed review of the prosected cadavers.
  • Improve their ability to identify and evaluate structures of the neuromusculoskeletal system in the clinical setting.
  • Understand in an advanced way the anatomy and function of the nerves and muscles as it relates to the electrophysiological examinations.
  • Enhance their ability to perform and interpret ultrasonography of the neuromusculoskeletal system through a thorough understanding of the relevant anatomy and its correlation with ultrasonographic images.

Appropriate for clinicians who perform ultrasound examinations or EMG examination or a clinician who wants to refresh their knowledge of neuromusculoskeletal anatomy.
