Beginning in the later stages of BIO 375 and continuing into BIO 376, student teams will perform complete autopsies in rotating fashion. Teams of three will begin with each member of the team performing one component of the autopsy (i.e. cranial, thoracic, and abdominal), and rotating in successive autopsies until all members of the team have performed a complete autopsy.
