Thursday Dec 20, 2012

Indiana University School of Medicine – Northwest (IUSM-NW) is accepting artwork from regional high school and college students.

The participants will ready the body donors for the fall 2013 gross anatomy class. The physical process of prosection includes the removal of donors’ skin and body fat to expose organs, muscles and other anatomical structures.

Artwork submissions must be without text in an electronic and editable format (i.e., Photoshop), preferably on CD. The IUSM-NW must receive all entries by 5p.m. on Monday, June 3, 2013.
