Welcome to the PT 431 Gross Anatomy Home Page and Welcome to the PT Program at UE. I hope you have an enjoyable summer and learn a lot in gross anatomy. Please try not to do too much during the six weeks classes meet, such as working too much and commuting long distances each day. If you were accepted into the program, you will no doubt be successful. Problems arise when students add too much to their already busy schedules.

This page is provided for your convenience and provides links to information that may be important to you.

Each year several students inquire about the human body donation program that provides human bodies for PT 431. For more information about this wonderful program please visit the Indiana University Anatomical Education Program.
