Anatomy Lab

Each year we spend 2 ½ months reviewing musculoskeletal anatomy and major surgical approaches. 
PGY-2’s are responsible for weekly dissections and teaching the major anatomy to the rest of the residents.  PGY-3  & 4s are responsible to review and teach the related surgical approaches.

Here is an example of our curriculum breakdown for the anatomy sessions.
