Because AnatomyOne is based on web technology that students are already accustomed to, they can grasp essential concepts quicker than ever before.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Dr. David Morton and Professor Mark Nielsen today hosted a brunch for colleagues at the American Association of Anatomy meeting, where they spoke about Amirsys AnatomyOne for the first time. The two distinguished authors have led a team of anatomists and clinicians to create the online, comprehensive anatomy resource for medical students and faculty.
During the brunch, Dr. Morton pointed out that traditional anatomy resources exist separately, like islands, without connections between them. For example, students and faculty use texts, atlases, review guides, dissection guides, and more for just one course. But, the resources do not communicate with each other. This means students are on their own to make the connections between resources themselves.
“AnatomyOne brings together all the resources students need to master gross anatomy and bridges the gaps between these islands of information,” states Dr. Morton, AnatomyOne Editor-in-Chief and Gross Anatomy Curriculum Director at the University of Utah School of Medicine. “The tightly integrated, highly searchable content helps students reach a deeper understanding. Because AnatomyOne is based on web technology that students are already accustomed to, they can grasp essential concepts quicker than ever before.”
AnatomyOne Executive Editor Mark Nielsen spoke about his series of AnatomyOne Body Patterns modules. Nielsen is a Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah and for the past twenty five years he has taught anatomy and its related subjects to over 20,000 students. His unique method for teaching body patterns helps students memorize and understand principles of anatomy more easily.
AnatomyOne includes text from regional, systemic, and clinical perspectives; multiple atlases, including illustrations, cadaver photos, radiologic images, and histology images; powerful Google-like search features; assessment tools with USMLE-style questions; and links among all the resources to help make the connections between them.
