Many medical centers offer courses to teach physicians the techniques involved in emergency care for trauma patients. The best of these trauma courses offer training using human cadavers and life-like simulators to demonstrate and allow development of invasive trauma skills.

Students and instructors alike agree that the learning experience is enhanced when training is based entirely on human anatomy. Additionally, the cost advantage can be significant. The University of Maryland Medical System in Baltimore is one training center leading the way with an innovative program using life-like simulators and human cadavers. Philip Militello, M.D., an instructor at Maryland, explains, ?It has become clear that students enjoy doing the procedures on a human cadaver specimen because of the identical scenarios, landmarks, and the hands-on experience. It mirrors the clinical scenario and is very well received.?

A 1995 Survey indicated that 75 percent of physician respondents would prefer to enroll in a human anatomy-based course, compared to one using animals. Thirty-eight percent said they would pay more for such a course, and 43 percent would travel further to take one.
