Unlike any other educational offering the AACS hosts, the Cadaver Course gives you the opportunity to apply lecture content and immediately practice a variety of procedures on a cadaver. With more than half the day spent in the lab performing hands-on work, this course will make you more confident in your skills. Breakfast, lunch and round-trip transportation are included in the course fee.
