The Department of Anatomy manages the operation of the human anatomy laboratories
at each of PCOM's campus locations. The department is responsible for educational
advancement while creating a safe teaching environment for students to develop skills
in each human anatomy laboratory.
The very essence of anatomical learning is the dissection of the cadaver, an experience
offered to medical and graduate students, as well as other approved programs. The
ultimate gift of body donation remains essential to this unique instruction. At PCOM,
we recognize the importance of physical cadaver dissection and the utilization of
models in addition to online learning modules. Our department members operate their
respective campus location's body donor programs, making these human anatomy courses
