In many settings, healthcare professionals are called upon to perform specialized medical procedures. These invasive techniques are essential for patient care but must be executed properly to avoid complications and minimize patient morbidity.  However, while learning such procedures, health-related professionals are often placed in stressful environments to learn the complex and multiple steps involved in these clinical procedures. Therefore, effectively learning these can be a challenge for any learner.

The specialized and unique four-day Seattle Science Foundation Netter's Clinical Procedures selective introduces and teaches students the most commonly performed therapeutic and diagnostic procedures in a non-threatening and relaxed environment, in a state-of-the-art bio-skills laboratory designed to mimic an actual operating theater and using fresh human cadaveric tissues. Lectures are designed to emphasize the relevant anatomy and technique for each of the procedures and are followed by a hands-on laboratory to practice the maneuvers under the supervision of practicing clinical anatomists, physicians, and surgeons. The course focuses on 20 procedures that medical practitioners might encounter in daily clinical or emergency settings.
