This is an interactive website for performing a virtual autopsy, complete with patient cases, patient history, cadaver images, and other tutorials on anatomy, physiology, and pathology.
Type of Material:
Would be a wonderful interactive tool and study guide for anatomy and physiology and/or pathology students. Could be used by individual, out-of-class assignment.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
Student is able to view and identify cadaveric images of the different body sections, and how they relate to individual case studies, pathologies, and causes of death. Student can test themselves through the use of individual feedback and post-quiz
Target Student Population:
Beginning medical, nursing, and allied health students, or anyone who is interested in learning post-mortem assessment
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Basic knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology
Information provided in step-by-step instruction; information is clear and concise; cadaveric images and patient histories help students a lot!
It is fun, interactive, low intensity graphics, allows the student to practice critical thinking skills by putting all of the clinical information together to construct a clinical picture.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This is a very clear and concise module, and it is easy to see how its set-up would help students understanding the anatomy of the human body, its pathologies, and how causes of death are determined. The addition of an A&P overview also helps those who have forgotten.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Point and click interface makes this module very easy to use.
Other Issues and Comments:
Great review exercise! Cadaver images are very detailed and wonderful textbook examples.
