Old-fashioned anatomy classes are a thing of the past in medical school. Using the latest technology, some schools are augmenting students’ traditional way of learning anatomy through dissecting cadavers by incorporating new techniques. Using a virtual human body medical students can see body parts from multiple angles using interactive tools. Some medical schools have collaborated with computer animation companies to develop tools to teach anatomy in entirely new ways. A partnership between NYU and Biodigital Systems is the latest to do so. Students are even given 3D glasses and iPads to facilitate their learning.
