  •   For cadaver dissection, your lab manual will regularly direct you to Dr. Craig Goodmurphy's Anatomy Guy website

Two very useful websites constructed by other Anatomy professors are:

 Dr. Allan Forsman  from ETSU has posted YouTube tutorials for many of the models we use in lab.


Pre-lab Assignments  1, 12, & 13 are due at the beginning of class, and will not be accepted late
nor graded if you skip lab.
