Anatomy and Cell Biology


The exponential progress of technology has led to an explosion of computer-based learning tools in the field of gross anatomical education. At the forefront of the classroom revolution are three-dimensional (3D) models. Publishers such as Elsevier are leading the foray and now offer fully interactive 3D models for purchase. With the current state of anatomical education, the addition of 3D anatomy on top of a crowded schedule can be daunting. Haphazard use can lead to student dissatisfaction and negative feedback. Through the use of research articles, we sought to discuss the advantages and disadvantages as well as highlight some the challenges that come with 3D anatomy. This seminar seeks to provide insight to anatomy educators on the proper implementation, seamless integration, and effective use of 3D anatomy in today’s anatomy laboratory.
