NJRMEC Cadaver Lab 2012


The NJRMEC Cadaver Lab is an annual event that is primarily put on and organized by Dr. Maurizio Miglietta, Regional Dean of TouroCOM-NY & Holly Foote, MS, OMS-IV, respectively.   It is for the benefit of TouroCOM's 3rd & 4th year classes, geared toward those interested in a career field of surgery or emergency medicine.

TouroCOM's anatomy lab & previously dissected cadavers were used for the lab.
