Move over, cadaver: Stanford course uses new tools to teach anatomy

A recently designed Stanford course is combining traditional resources with fancy new technological gadgets to teach anatomy to undergrads. My colleague recently wrote about one super-sized tool - the digital dissection table, which Sakti Srivastava, MD, says “complements the more traditional cadaver-type of learning in a very powerful way.” Now, in the video above, Srivastava and instructor Taylor Johnston, MS, provide more details on the course, called Anatomy for Bioengineers. "I really do wish I had a class like this when I was a student," Johnston concludes.
