The perfect introduction (or refresher) for attorneys dealing with personal injury, workers’ compensation, disability cases, and for anyone who wants to learn how the human body works! 


Lawyers are trained to recognize or defeat theories of liability. Few are educated in medical matters. Without that knowledge, the attorney is at a disadvantage when cross-examining a health care professional or trying to explain or disprove an injury to the fact finder. This program is designed to help you understand anatomy and the medical/legal issues involved in a claim.


Sam Hodge brings boundless enthusiasm and unique expertise to the classroom. He is a skilled litigator who has taught medical and legal topics for thousands of students. He uses animations, simulations, video clips, and simple analogies to help you understand and remember his lessons long after you leave the classroom. He has captivated audiences throughout the US—and now he will captivate you, too!


Sam takes you on a multi-media exploration of the human body. You will learn basic anatomy terms, function, how injury occurs and is diagnosed, and common surgeries employed to repair the injury.
