The Institute of Human Anatomy is a private human cadaver lab that teaches various healthcare professionals with the use of real human cadavers. Our goal is simple — teach as many people as possible about the one thing they carry with themselves 24/7, for the entirety of their lives — their body.
We’re a unique facility specializing in the utilization of human cadavers as instruments for advanced anatomical education and a host facility for medical device training and prototype testing. We provide a state-of-the-art education experience utilizing human cadavers for those engaged in or seeking a career that requires the study and understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
For 3rd party medical device trainings we provide lab capabilities of 1-5 stations, classroom(s) with all necessary audio/visual for up to 60, and an on-site cafeteria.
We work directly with career and vocational colleges, accrediting agencies, medical device companies, and individual healthcare and wellness professionals to further advance education and medical understanding of the human body and its many systems.
Cadaver Use Policy
The Institute of Human Anatomy (IOHA) takes the donation and care of our cadavers very seriously. We work with a number of cadaver providers and adhere to all protocols associated with their use. We are incredibly grateful to those that make the selfless decision to donate their bodies to medical and educational study. We are humbled by the ability to provide millions of people across the globe with knowledge of human anatomy and physiology with the utmost respect for those that make it possible.
From the earliest days of cadaveric study the Latin phrase, Mortui vivos docent (the deceased teach the living), has been a guiding principle in medical schools all over the world. As human beings living on this planet, one thing we all have in common is our physical bodies. We live in an accelerated time of medical learning and technological advancement and yet millions of people, due to a number of variables, do not understand some basics of their very own anatomy.
Our purpose at IOHA is to educate as many people that we can about human anatomy and physiology. We could not do this without those that donate. We have great respect for those that do and for their families. It is an amazing opportunity to teach so many people and our gratitude to those that make it possible is immeasurable. Thank you, donors. You are making a positive impact on millions of people.
