The quintessential first year medical school course, Anatomy inspires excitement — and anticipation — like no other course can. From the very beginning of your medical education, you are entrusted with a donor’s body to dissect, to learn from, and to care for. Each step, from the first incision to the final day, is a powerful moment and an unrivaled learning experience. Don’t worry if you feel nervous or apprehensive about this class — most of your classmates will feel the same way. The course directors, TAs, and of course your lab group will all help and support you as you learn about the amazing intricacies of the human body. By the end of the course, you’ll have learned more than you ever thought you could, forged lasting bonds with your lab group, and developed a connection with — and a deep respect for — the donor whose gift made this experience possible.
