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).
This course covers core anatomy topics which have direct relevance to the clinical practice of medicine, such as the identification of landmarks for insertion of central venous catheters. The course does not cover neuroanatomy of the brain.
This course is intended for students in the health professions. It can be used as an introduction to clinical anatomy or as a review & reinforcement of this content.
