Anatomy of the Abdomen and Pelvis

Course Description

In this anatomy course you will explore the organs involved in our food digestion and discover the common causes of abdominal and pelvic pain. The latest graphics and animations will help you to find new insights and understanding of this part of the body, that has been the focus of anatomical research for centuries and presently arouses renewed scientific interest. The course will be taught by Leiden's multidisciplinary team of anatomists.

Warning: Please keep in mind that some videos, tutorials and readers related to gross anatomy can be quite graphic in nature. The anatomy-on-the-table clips contain cadaveric footage, but no full body views.
