Congress Dissection Workshop


McGill University

September 10-11, 2022

Limited to 50 congress attendees

$2,500 workshop fee


Workshop Description:

McGill is proud and honoured to host this unique anatomy workshop for the 6th International Fascia Research Congress. During this workshop, participants will attend live dissection collaboratively performed by Dr. Carla Stecco and Dr. Gabriel Venne. This unique workshop will bridge classical anatomy with fascial anatomy. Macroscopic anatomy of the superficial, deep and visceral fasciae will be covered in detail with particular attention to the interrelation between the fascial layers and other clinically important anatomical structures. Participants will have the opportunity to be actively engaged during the dissection and discussion activities. Live cadaveric dissection will be supplemented with prosections, histological and medical images to offer different perspectives of the explored structures. This integrative anatomical workshop is open to anyone curious about the importance of the fascial system in the human body.    

The rules about the McGill lab:

At McGill, we consider that having access to human material in the Anatomy Laboratory is a significant privilege; it is essential that donated bodies are treated with the greatest professionalism. As a user of the Anatomy Laboratory, participants will be asked to adhere to a strict Code of Conduct which will be provided during the registration process.  


Presented by:

Dr. Gabriel Venne, McGill University

Dr. Gabriel Venne is a Professor of Anatomy at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the internationally renowned McGill University. Dr. Venne is also a practicing osteopath since 2009, and is an expert in classical dissection. Through his clinical practice and dissections, he had developed a profound understanding of the clinical implications of the interrelationship between neurovascular structures, visceral organs within the fascial network. Dr. Venne is known for his passion and enthusiasm during workshops and dissection; you will feel engaged during your exploration of the intricacies of the human body.
