ATSU-KCOM welcomes Japanese students for a week of learning

June 19, 2019
Posted In: KCOM, Missouri Campus, Uncategorized, University Headlines

Japanese Traditional Osteopathic College (JTOC) sent 27 students from the inaugural class to spend a week at the end of May studying the anatomy of fascia at A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM). The course included cadaveric dissections, studies of the prosected cadaveric specimens demonstrating unique aspects of the fascia in different regions of the body, study of anatomy using ultrasound, and a brief introduction to the microscopic structure of the fascia.

“The Anatomy Department at ATSU-KCOM was charged with teaching anatomy of the elusive fascial structures to 27 Japanese speaking students using cadaveric laboratory,” Peter Kondrashov, PhD, anatomy department chair, says. “It was a learning curve both for us and the students, as we discovered new ways to dissect the body to demonstrate unique aspects of fascia. Although challenging, the course was rewarding for the faculty of ATSU and extremely well received by JTOC students.”
