Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy is an online platform with more than 300 narrated videos of real cadaver specimens. The University’s subscription gives you anytime, anywhere access from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
The Video Atlas was originally intended to be used by individual medical and dental students. (The Medical Library has several well-used sets of ‘Acland’s’ on DVD!). Because of its realism, simple language, and three-dimensional quality, the Video Atlas has become popular with students and teachers in many other fields.
Anatomy, medical and dental students
In anatomy, medical and dental studies, the Video Atlas is productive and time efficient as a preview, as an adjunct to dissection, and as a review tool. It is also helpful for students who need to re-learn clinically relevant anatomy for surgical runs.
Allied Health students
The Video Atlas is widely used by students and teachers in nursing, physical and occupational therapy, kinesiology, and massage therapy. For students who don’t have access to dissection facilities, the Video Atlas provides an appreciation of the real human body and a direct understanding of the mechanics of body movement.
