Beginning Trimming, Anatomy and Dissection

Times are listed in Mountain Time (Denver) – use the converter to find your local time.

This clinic fulfills the Beginning Anatomy clinic requirement for PHCP students.

The basics of distal limb anatomy will be covered in the morning followed by trimming and dissection on cadaver legs. If possible students should bring their own tools but we will have some to share for those flying in.

Please bring your own lunch to eat on location. There are plenty of places to pick up prepared food in the area ahead of time.

If you have a cadaver leg of your own you would like to dissect with us please let us know and bring it along. Cadaver legs are getting harder to come by and can be quite expensive.  If you have access to some we would be grateful.


Visit Anatomy of the Equine and purchase the Apps or Ebooks. Spend time on this web site and get familiar with the distal limb anatomy before you attend the clinic.
