Anatomy can't be learned through dissection alone
By Dr Julio Warner L. on 20. January 2021 for Head and Neck Anatomy

The confidence from Dr. Canby as many other Lecturio Presenters reassures the average student. I am particularly satisfied with the way the Lecturio courses are designed and presented. I highly rate this course because it is up to my expectation. If a student doesn't learn anatomy from this course he/she won't learn anywhere else.
