Pilot Project Using Anatomy Apps and Mobile Resources to Improve Learning in the Anatomy Lab

They intend to purchase an iPad for the Education and Curriculum Librarian to support and demonstrate new anatomy teaching technology, as well as 30 copies of the Netter?s Anatomy Atlas iPad application and 30 copies of Grant?s Dissector through Inkling to be used on 30 NYU School of Medicine iPads supplied to the anatomy lab. At the beginning of their anatomy course, students will receive a demonstration from the Librarian of how to access and use the iPads. The demonstration will include an overview of what is contained in each of the applications and how they can be used to support anatomy education. Students will be able to go back and forth between the 3D visualization and the reference applications in real time as they dissect the cadavers to support their learning and retention.
