Gross Anatomy of the Back and Upper Limb

Gross Anatomy of the Back and Upper Limb

In Partnership with the Division of Anatomy at The Ohio State University and Mercy Health–St. Rita’s, Ohio State Lima is offering a series of continuing education units (CEU) in gross anatomy. This comes in response to the increasing need for educators that are able to teach a detailed level of gross anatomy in different academic settings.

This unique CEU will be delivered by Professors of Anatomy using lectures, labs, and hands-on tutorials. Participants will also be given the opportunity to learn detailed anatomy by dissecting a human cadaver in a wet lab. This superior method of learning, wouldn’t have been available without the generous gift of our body donors.

Upon completion, participants will be awarded a Certificate of Completion from The Ohio State University, Office of Distance Education & eLearning covering 3 CEUs.

Date: June 21 - 25, 2021

In partnership with Mercy Health–St. Rita’s, The Ohio State University at Lima has opened an advanced anatomy lab onsite at the hospital. Mercy Health and The Ohio State University Medical Center have been working collaboratively in a Healthy State Alliance to address some of Ohio’s most pressing medical issues—including cancer care, transplant options, and addiction services.
