Course Description:

Join Dr. Frank Willard for this fascinating tour of embryology and development of fascial structures from the cranial base to the pelvic floor. Dr. Willard will review cervical, thoracic, abdominopelvic, and mediastinal fascial development, including the following considerations:

  • The interoceptive system and fascia
  • Viscerosomatic integration and the small fiber system
  • Somites and the visceral fascia system of the trunk
  • The non-somatic visceral fascial organization of the head

Learn about the embryological development of visceral and pharyngeal fascial systems through vivid anatomical images and inspiring lectures from a brilliant educator.
