This course covers 25 core anatomy concepts that "all medical students should know upon graduation from medical school."  

The course material was initially developed for use in a series of randomized trials conducted with over 1700 students at 7 medical schools:
   Baylor College of Medicine
   Harvard Medical School
   Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami
   Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
   University of Alabama (Birmingham) School of Medicine
   University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
   University of Virginia School of Medicine

The content was developed by Dr. Shaffer, content-validated by a second anatomy educator, pilot-tested on 30 Harvard students, and fine-tuned to optimize its psychometric properties (reliability, difficulty, etc.).

All course-author revenue from this course will be donated to Partners in Health (www.pih.org).
