Prosected specimens are dissected by the skilled prosectors at Queen’s University for the purpose of anatomical education at the University. The prosection experience consists of a half day of full integration into the William James Henderson Anatomy Learning Centre with all its facets: wet and dry anatomical specimens, plastinated specimens, sectional material, histologic images, models, and audio / visual equipment. The second half of the day is spent as a hands on practical component working to correlate the regional anatomy with its examination, palpation and manipulation.
The purpose of the prosection experience is to orientate students within a strategically organized Learning Centre supported by succinct instruction and self directed learning. Students are encouraged to work in groups to combine any resources they need to accomplish their goals.
The next prosection course will be scheduled soon. Please check back often for updates.
