The study of gross anatomy presents unique challenges: students confront a daunting volume of new and complex information within time constraints for proving their mastery and faculty are charged with delivering high-quality courses in decreased curricular hours. Where can they turn for help? The Online Guided Gross Anatomy Dissector is an innovative learning tool that addresses the needs of both students and faculty, with proven success.
The Suárez Dissector makes possible the teaching of all anatomy, head-to-toe, in a rigorous yet approachable manner. Several features make it a favorite among students and faculty alike:
- Over 2,000 original photographs of cadavers (superficial to deep) present a visual in-lab dissection guide, eliminating the need for reading lengthy “how to dissect” descriptions and maximizing dissecting efficiency.
- 41 dissection videos enable students to envision the dissection ahead of time, making them better prepared for the laboratory.
- 327 interactive, multi-labeled flash cards are included—at no additional charge—for the students to test and reinforce their knowledge of the material.
- Its streamlined, modular nature allows faculty to assign the Suárez Dissector as the exclusive laboratory tutorial, or to pick and choose individual sections for self-directed learning of gross anatomy.
- Its portability makes it ideal for reviewing anatomy from home, from the library, from the cafe—anywhere accessible to the Internet.
The anatomy is presented precisely as a first-year student encounters it, dissects it, and is assessed on it. Concise, interactive dissection instructions promote student initiative to dissect, resulting in more efficient use of time in the laboratories.
After three years of class testing at Georgetown University School of Medicine—both with medical students who have access to cadaveric dissections and with Special Master's students who do not—the results are clear: the Suárez Dissector yields comparable exam scores for both groups. Contact Dr. Suárez-Quian at [email protected] for the assessment data after students used the Online Guided Gross Anatomy Dissector.
Interactive, Multi-Labeled Flash Cards Increase Retention
Included, at no additional charge, are 300 interactive, multi-labeled flash cards. Using images from the Dissector, Dr. Suárez-Quian has created interactive identification exercises that review the location of important nerves, organs, vessels, muscles, bones, and tissues. Without additional expense, students can prep for course, SHELF, and Board exams. The exercises are located at the end of each module so students can easily navigate between quizzing themselves and referring back to the original material.
