A Visual Guide to Human Dissection

A Visual Guide to Human Dissection

Medical school at Jefferson Medical College begins with a 12-week course titled "Human Form and Development," which consists of Human Anatomy and Embryology lectures and Human Anatomy lab. With just under 200 structures to be identified during the first week of anatomy lab, adjustment to medical school can be overwhelming. Jefferson students, working with a faculty supervisor and AISR media and instructional specialists, have created a series of dissection videos as an educational support resource to help students learn anatomy. Eight areas were completed in 2005, as part of Jefferson's Summer Computer Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Dean of Jefferson Medical College. Additional videos will be completed in subsequent years. Advisors include Richard R. Schmidt, PhD, Department of Pathology, Anatomy and Cell Biology, and Anthony J. Frisby, PhD, Director of AISR Education Services.
