Anatomy Above the Shoulders : A Masterclass with Dr Ron Kikinis, Surgical Planning Laboratory, Radiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Other events...
Human anatomy is a foundation of medicine and therefore important for anybody who is active in the medical field. This master class will review the anatomy of the head and neck using an engineering perspective. Topics discussed will include the biomechanics of the neck, thermal stabilization of the brain, an introduction into brain anatomy and some of the sensory systems found in the skull. The class will also include discussion of a variety of resources available on the internet.

Participants will need to bring their own laptops and download and install the electronic version of the Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy (7th ed) from the UWA library.
