Anatomical structures of the body are presented in a true-to-life way.

Real Anatomy 2.0 3-D imaging software allows students to dissect through over 40 layers of a real human body to study the anatomical structures of all body systems. Using Real Anatomy, students can interact and practice with a real cadaver as much as they need from the comfort of their own computer.

Adaptive practice prepares students for class or quizzes and exams.

Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, section-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.

Concept lectures encourage students to become active learners.

Created by author Mark Nielsen, Concept Lectures provide a great resource for professors who want to incorporate more of a flipped classroom into their teaching. These video lectures are a dynamic way to help students focus on key concepts and patterns in anatomy.

GERARD J. TORTORA is a professor of biology at Bergen Community College in Paramus, New Jersey, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as microbiology. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his master’s degree in science education from Montclair State College. He has been a member of many professional organizations including the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).

MARK NIELSEN is a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah. For the past 31 years, he has taught anatomy, neuroanatomy, embryology, human dissection, comparative anatomy, and an anatomy teaching course to over 25,000 students. He has prepared and participated in hundreds of dissections of both humans and other vertebrate animals. All his courses incorporate a cadaver-based component to the training with an outstanding exposure to cadaver anatomy. He is a member of the American Association of Anatomists (AAA), the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), and the American Association of Clinical Anatomists (AACA). Nielsen has a passion for teaching anatomy and sharing his knowledge with his students. In addition to teaching, he has also trained and served as a mentor for over 1,200 students who have worked in his anatomy laboratory as teaching assistants. His concern for students and his teaching excellence have been acknowledged through numerous awards.
