This one-week intensive workshop covers most aspects in the analysis of human skeletal remains as they relate to forensic anthropology and forensic medicine. Students will receive classroom and laboratory training utilizing a broad array of learning materials including contemporary skeletons in the Department of Anatomy, John A. Burns School of Medicine of the University of Hawaii.

The workshop is divided into two components: 1) human osteology and forensic anthropology (4 days); and 2) field recovery of human remains in a forensic setting (1 day). Working individually and in small teams, students will analyze a known-identity human skeleton and compile a biological profile consisting of the individual's age at death, sex, ancestry, stature, bone disease, and trauma. This is a non-credit educational activity and certificates will be provided to each student upon successful completion of the course.

Interested individuals must apply and be accepted to attend before registering. Visit for more information.
