Anatomical Skills Lab
Intensive Care Unit
Patient Care Unit
The Anatomical Skills lab is a space designed for the education and training of health care professionals through realistic learning experiences. Fresh frozen cadavers, cadaveric parts and food-grade animal tissue are used for intricate dissection, procedural practice, surgical training, and refinement of surgical techniques.
Our center is an ideal facility for hosting a cadaver workshop, allowing for hands-on cadaver dissections/surgical procedures combined with didactic instruction in one of our conference rooms. Corporations can rent our facilities to demonstrate procedures, tools, and new instrumentation for training clinicians, surgeons and other health care professionals.
Note: Jump holds responsibility for purchasing cadavers required for usage in our facility; outside specimens are not permitted. All specimens are procured through accredited vendors, and are serologically tested for HIV, HBV, HCV, and syphilis.
Men's and women's locker rooms are positioned at the entrance of the lab space, allowing for professionals to safely store personal belongings and privately change and shower for procedures in the lab.
Connected to the lab is an Anatomical prep room, which contains a walk-in freezer and refrigeration unit for specimen storage, and an instrument washer/disinfector to assure proper cleaning of instrumentation.
A variety of surgical equipment, instruments and supplies are available for use. The lab houses an operating microscope, dissecting microscopes, and endoscopic systems, as well as various cadaveric specimen fixation systems. Each of the mobile booms in lab is equipped with medical air, medical vacuum, nitrogen, electric outlets, as well as VGA, S-video, and BNC inputs.
Additionally, standard Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is provided. This includes scrubs, gowns, aprons, gloves, shoe covers, head coverings/surgical caps, masks, and eye protection (goggles, face shields).
A c-arm fluoro x-ray unit is available for use in the lab space, with lead aprons, thyroid shields and safety glasses provided for protection.
Where appropriate, the lab can accommodate outside equipment and instrumentation. For example, if a company would want to demonstrate new products/equipment to the learners, this would be permissible.
The lab is set up with a proctor station and 4 "student" stations; however, this arrangement can be flexed to fit the user’s needs. Each station consists of a dissecting table, a flat-panel HD display monitor and overhead surgical lights with onboard camera.
The proctor station has a radiolucent surgical table, while the student stations have stainless steel dissecting tables. The proctor monitor can be linked to the student station monitors to stream live images/video.
Various lecture rooms with full meeting support services are available for didactic segments, accommodating up to 300 people.
The onboard surgical cameras in the Anatomical lab allow for tele-presence and distance learning, where the image can be broadcast to another room within our building.
Catering and AV needs are available as well.
