Heidelberg University dissection seminars for osteopaths

o Experienced teachers who are also active in the practice of osteopathy will help you with the dissection.

Since the beginning of the 90's, dissectionseminars for Osteopaths are organized at the University of Heidelberg.

Particular aspects of these seminars are:

  • The study material is not pre-prepared.
  • The participants practice the dissection themselves

The support of these seminars consists of:
  • Experienced teachers who are also active in the practice of osteopathy. This gives the opportunity to reconnect the seminar directly to the practice of osteopathy.
  • Short thematically tied theoretical explanations
  • An adapted syllabus by theme with a built-in checklist/ with integrated examination-questions

By performing themselves the dissections, in addition to the increase of knowledge, the participants receive also a unique tridimensional insight in the anatomical complexities. And this ranging from the muscles, fascias, bone structures up to the smallest blood vessels and nerves. Also the internal organs belong to a detailed study. As a consequence of the mas of information as well as the large number of dissection steps, we have subdivided the complete dissection into 2 groups of in total 8 modules.

During a dissection weekend all modules are available but you can only subscribe to one at a time.

Group 1:
(The modules in this group do not require a large technical skill. It is perfect if you have no experience)
  • Upper extremity
  • Lower extremity
  • Cranium-spine
  • Spine (inclusive spinal channel)

Group 2:
(In cooperation with the anatomical faculty we agree that participants can only subscribe to one of these modules if they have the necessary dissection experience (= having done minimal two modules of the first group))
  • Face
  • Viscera thorax
  • Viscera abdomen
  • Urogenital region (female)

In addition to these not yet studied human preparations, a whole lot of plastinates are available for the participants (unique for Heidelberg). One can also use an expanded collection of microscopic material, whereby also this dimension of the anatomy can be studied in detail
