Introduction to Human Osteology

Date: Monday 08 July - Thursday 11 July 2019

Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine


This four-day course offers an in-depth study of the human skeleton through informative lectures and interactive hands-on practical sessions using real human skeletal remains from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine’s (VIFM) reference skeletal collection. The course will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of human skeletal and dental anatomy, and give participants the opportunity to learn how to identify and side each skeletal element (including major anatomical landmarks) and classify dental remains both complete and fragmentary. Participants will also be introduced to the osteological principles of differentiating human from non-human bone and creating a biological profile (i.e., estimating age, sex, ancestry and stature).
