Anatomy TAs and Interns

One of the distinguishing characteristics of the Anatomy Program at UNL is Dr. Woodman's use of undergraduates to teach the advanced laboratory material presented in the Human Anatomy Laboratories. The key to utilizing a peer-to-peer education system has been training and grooming potential TAs through the Anatomy Internship Program. This program provides driven students with an advanced laboratory education and a team environment that fosters growth and development as student and educator.
