This introduction to cadaver anatomy is designed for practitioners in any area of health care to review basic human anatomy and observe firsthand the underlying structures of the body. Prerequisite: Human anatomy course (does not need to be recent). Instructor: Becky Love, DVM 6 CEUs





Dr. Love is an experienced instructor who offers an invaluable learning experience of the human body. Class size is limited  to ensure that each participant will have the opportunity to view and touch the cadavers while she narrates and answers questions. She will also tailor her instruction to specific interests wherever possible. Topics include:

  • Muscles and structures of the back
  • Muscles and structures of the upper and lower extremities
  • Muscles and structures of the head and neck
  • Muscles, structures and organs of the thorax and abdomen
  • Brain and spinal cord

The instruction is conducted in the cadaver lab where the bodies are preserved with formaldehyde. Although the lab has an excellent filtration and circulations system, you will be required to wear lab coats, nitrile gloves and use a respirator during the three hours in the lab each day. (Lab coats, gloves and respirators are provided.) Please note that Dr. Love is sensitive to your concerns about mortality and the body as a vessel of the spirit.


Dr Rebecca Love, DVM, is an associate professor at Bastyr University where she teaches courses in gross and microscopic anatomy. Passionate about the art and science of the human body she guides naturopathic students through a year-long cadaver dissection program. Additionally she teaches palpation anatomy to acupuncture, exercise science and massage students.
