  1. Understand the unique features of the skin of the face.
  2. Gain an understanding of the names, origins, insertions, and functions of the muscles of facial expression.
  3. Understand the relationship between the muscles of facial expression and the skin.
  4. Compare the similarities and differences of the muscles of facial expression and the typical skeletal muscle.

Course Requirements

The course is designed to provide a unique opportunity for individuals that use the knowledge of human facial anatomy as part of their profession, and although this course was designed with the medical aesthetics professional in mind, other professionals and students where facial anatomy is important to their profession are welcome to enroll in this course.

Previous dissection experience is not a requirement for this course. Most anyone can learn how to dissect with proper guidance; however, dissection must be done with care and respect for the donated bodies, so students must dissect with the purpose of furthering their understanding of the human body.

What an awesome learning experience! I can't wait to come back!
