Osteology, Radiology and Surface Anatomy (ORSA) is a laboratory-based course designed to provide interactive learning activities that contribute to an understanding of the bony features that contribute to the topography of the human skin surface, its clinical landmarks, and the positions of important deeper structures.  For each surface region studied, the learner should be able to: 1. Identify bones and bony features that contribute to the surface anatomy of the volunteer patients from your dissecting team; 2. Describe, visualize, and palpate clinically-important surface landmarks on a volunteer patient from your dissecting team; 3. Palpate the positions of vertebral levels, dermatomes, organs, vessels and accessible lymph nodes on a volunteer patient. Students will work with other members of your dissecting team in each surface anatomy session, beginning with an examination of pertinent bones and their landmarks in an osteology lab session. Then, each member will examine the assigned skin region on a person who volunteers to serve as a surrogate patient.
