Embalmed cadavers have and continue to be widely used in anatomy education at most medical schools. However, in a program developed at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University students learn anatomy from unembalmed/fresh cadavers that more closely resemble the living body. Additionally, they are taught by residents and fellows who enhance the practicality of the anatomical knowledge gained. Thus, this unique educational environment provides a learning experience enhanced in such a way that students feel that what they are learning is immediately applicable to clinical situations.
