Imagine a time before the creation of both sophisticated written and technological references. During such times early anatomists utilized keen observation skills to explore and investigate anatomical structures. MVCC students gain knowledge in human anatomy through a process of guided exploration called “guided inquiry.” Silent Teachers (human cadavers) have played a major role in the education of our students who have gone on to pursue medical careers. The Mathematics and Natural Sciences Department would like to invite the college community to learn about the anatomical gift program and our Silent Teachers contribution to this guided inquiry based approach to learning. Warning: This workshop is not for everyone as body cavities and internal organs will be fully exposed for viewing.
