DisclaimerThis is not intended to serve as a primary study guide for Anatomy or Clinical Skills exams. Surface Anatomy is a peer-taught mentoring program overseen by Dr. Spudich; however, the review sessions are primarily designed by MS2 Coordinators. The goal of review sessions is to highlight clinically relevant anatomical landmarks in order to reinforce lecture material. All review topics have been discussed in lecture; no new testable material will be introduced in these sessions.
