HUMAN INTERNAL ORGANS
United Tissue Network (UTN) is an AATB accredited, non-transplant anatomical tissue bank providing cadaver specimens to approved medical professionals dedicated to the advancement of medical technology, training and education. Cadavers provide the most realistic representation of human anatomy allowing for variation from individual to individual, making human tissue an ideal model to perform advanced surgical training on.
UTN provides vital human internal organs required to accurately present a lecture and dissection of a human cadaver. The underlying philosophy of studying anatomy with human internal organs is that the students have the most realistic opportunity to accurately study the body. A hands-on approach of studying human anatomical organs allows for information to be retained easier and prompts further questions.
THE REASON I CONTINUE TO COORDINATE TRIPS TO THE UTN LAB WITH MY STUDENTS IS BECAUSE IT IS VERY BENEFICIAL TO THEIR LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND THEY GET TO SEE AND FEEL REAL HUMAN ANATOMY INSTEAD OF JUST SEEING PICTURES IN A TEXTBOOK.
Through UTN’s Donor Direct Program, human tissue can be provided for the classroom setting opposed to animal tissue. Human tissue exploration plays a vital role in developing a deeper understanding of human anatomy and their underlying health. The overwhelming advantage of human tissue is its direct relevance to human medicine.

HUMAN INTERNAL ORGANS IN THE CLASSROOM
UTN strives to provide human internal organs to students with the hope that by learning about their own bodies through studying human anatomy with a hands-on approach, that students will come to respect how their bodies work, how they treat them, what they put into them and how they can make a difference in everyday lives.
In addition, a complete medical-social history is provided for each donor (personal information is suppressed to protect the donor and the donor family) to aid in the training program. This provides information on the donor such as past surgical history, cancer, heart health, bone health and other key factors that may impact the overall experience for the medical professionals and students.
USING HUMAN TISSUES TO UNDERSTAND HUMAN ANATOMY AND DISEASE IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF SCIENCE.
