The Basic Cadaver Anatomy course at Bastyr University offers an opportunity for students and practitioners in every area of health care to review basic anatomy and to view the underlying structures of the body directly.
The course has two purposes:
Cadaver anatomy students represent many disciplines, including massage therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, rolfing, yoga, Heller body work, Alexander Technique, acupuncture, nursing, and dental hygiene.
Experienced instructors ensure that all students have opportunities to view and touch the human body, as well as ask questions. Instructors are sensitive to students' concerns about mortality and the body as a vessel of the spirit.
Class size is limited to ten students with one instructor and two to three cadavers. Each class session is three hours long.
Six-hour and 12-hour courses are offered. The six-hour course serves as a comprehensive introduction. The longer course provides more time to refine the understanding of the human body. Many students who have taken the six-hour course enroll a second time.
Special requests for additional subject matter and special emphasis can frequently be accommodated.
Prospective students should be well-versed in the subject of human anatomy. Students may prepare for the course through formal study or thorough exploration of the topic on their own.
