  • Observe dissection of the abdomen and pelvis, and dissection into the thorax.
  • Observe dissection of the cranium with a Visceral Manipulation focus.
  • Discover the detailed functional anatomy of abdomen, pelvis, thorax and cranium.
  • Learn topographical discernment of organs in relationship to the musculoskeletal system.
  • Break-out sessions with specific organs (liver, kidney, spleen, heart, lungs).
  • Study the disposition of the various organs/structures to discern pathological conditions.
