Summer Programs

The Division of Clinical Anatomy offers summer educational programs for enthusiastic and talented high school and college students that explore head-to-toe anatomy. The course includes classroom and laboratory sessions led by Stanford instructors, and will include student-led clinical case study presentations, guided dissection opportunities, and surgical simulations with human cadavers.

Research & Development

From breaking ground in the field of affordable prosthetics to exploring the educational applications of augmented reality, researchers in Clinical Anatomy work to advance our understanding of how our bodies interact with the high-tech world around us.

Our laboratory facilities offer extensive resources for preparing and studying specimens. 

The new Bio Skills lab can be configured for dissection tasks or surgical procedure simulations, complete with audio-visual recording and operating room-style lighting. Facilities can be reserved for many kids of lab activities. Contact us for details.

How To Help

Generous support from donors and affiliates helps to make our work possible. Whether you wish to donate your body for study, make a financial gift, or become an industry partner, your contribution to our program makes an invaluable difference to the physicians, surgeons, and researchers of tomorrow.
