Course Description

NOVAVIA is proud to bring you in the United States assisting you in the process of registering and attending one of the most famous and prestigious cadaver dissection course worldwide, with a internationally renowned faculty. Cadaver dissection is directly performed by the participants for the entire course duration. This course consists of an intensive four-day anatomical dissection and kinesiological review of the lower extremity. The primary purpose of this course is to provide clinician with a solid anatomical and kinesiologic basis for understanding normal and abnormal function of the musculoskeletal system. This information is essential for the development of effective treatment programs.

Each participant will work in pairs and will be allotted four afternoons to perform a complete dissection on one side of an embalmed human cadaver. The 15-hour dissection will include all regions from the hip to the distal joints of the foot. The faculty are experienced physical therapists who are also qualified anatomists and instructors. Specific joint dissections and prosections will also be included in the program. The dissection will be supplemented by four morning sessions of anatomical and kinesiological lecture enriched with slides, kinesiologic models, and video presentations.

Course Objectives

  • Perform a complete dissection of the lower extremity.
  • Understand the general topography, detailed attachments, innervation of all the muscles of the lower limb.
  • Understand the anatomical relationship between fascial planes.
  • Be able to trace the blood supply and afferent innervation throughout the lower limb.
  • Understand the relationship between the structure and function of every joint of the lower extremity.
  • Cite the major muscle drive and arthrokinematic pattern of movement unique to each joint.
  • Understand the kinesiologic synergies which exist between muscle and joint systems that provide for normal and pathological motion.
  • Be able to integrate concepts of kinesiology into clinical practice.

Who should attend

This course is designed for medical and/or health professionals who wish to integrate their own clinical experience with the sciences of anatomy and kinesiology. We feel that a first-hand view of the structure of the musculoskeletal system is a valuable experience for the clinician who treats and/or educates patients with limb dysfunction. This course is especially relevant to physical/occupational therapists, assistants, medical residents, chiropractors, athletic trainers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and massage therapists. The encompassing functional nature of the course will provide clinical relevance to anyone who treats the lower limb of patients with orthopedic or non-orthopedic disability.

Registration fee

  • Registration fee $735,00 (approx 625,00 € - exchange rates slightly change every day)

Tuition includes the 4 day course, all course materials including handouts, use of dissection tools, aprons, cadaver, anatomy and dissection texts, breakfasts, breaks and lunches for the entire course duration.

To register e-mail "info@novaviaproject.com" with a the subject "GROSS DISSECTION USA REGISTRATION", indicating how many people would like to register.

The course is organized by Marquette University; NOVAVIA will exclusively provide support for flights booking (each participant might consider to stay longer in the US for vacation purposes), possible ground transportations, booking process at the University dormitory, Visa Waiver Program process, temporary health insurance and logistic in general.
A NOVAVIA member will be present as a representative for the entire course in Milwaukee.
