MRC Year 1 Recommended Resources: Anatomy - Gross

Anatomy - Gross

Faculty Notes

Anatomy includes a few main types of resources, of which you'll find recommended examples below:

  1. Anatomy Textbooks, containing mostly drawings and descriptions, medical imaging, clinical correlations, and tables of information
  2. Anatomy Atlases, containing either labeled photographs or artistic renditions of cadaveric dissections--very useful in the dissection lab when trying to find structures or learn spatial relationships
  3. Anatomy Dissectors, providing instruction on how to dissect in the lab, where to make incisions, etc. We tend to provide this information to you in dissection guides we have developed for each of your anatomy labs
