Anatomy Lab Facilities

The Division of Clinical Anatomy maintains lab and learning resource facilities configured to support the instruction of human anatomy at all levels. These modern, fully-equipped facilities are also appropriate for numerous other activities, including surgical skills training, research and development, and lab skills practice. Consistent with the approach that cadaveric specimens together with medical visualization technologies provide the ideal environment for anatomy study, we make our technology-rich dissection lab, Bio Skills lab, anatomy library, and other facilities available for Stanford-affiliated groups and provide staff support when needed.
