What is an@tomedia?

an@tomedia is a unique way to learn about the anatomy of the human body.

It is a comprehensive, self-paced learning program that explores anatomy from four different perspectives.

These perspectives teach you how the body is constructed (from regions and systems) and how you can deconstruct the body (with dissection and imaging techniques).

an@tomedia is currently available in flash and optimised for your desktop or laptop, but later this year we will be launching a redesigned version that will work seamlessly on tablets & iPads.

Buy now and get access to the flash version while we finish off the new platform; we'll reset your anniversary date once we've launched, giving you immediate access to the flash version + a full 12 months of the new platform!

Join the thousands of people who rely on the an@tomedia platform to support their medical studies every day.

Nine modules

Each module includes detailed information including interactive text, image overlays and clinical questions

Four perspectives

Categorised to help understand both ethe theoretical & practical aspects of anatomy

  • Regions: includes surface and functional anatomy
  • Systems: includes conceptual and clinical anatomy
  • Dissection: includes practical procedures and post-mortem
  • Imaging: includes sectional and endoscopic anatomy

The an@tomedia mission

To provide innovative anatomy & multimedia learning resources, of global application, benefit and adoption. In doing so, to honour human body donors, incorporating the latest advances in radiology and research to advance the discipline of anatomy.

an@tomedia provides:

  • detailed serial dissections of real human bodies
  • coloured overlays of individual structures
  • multiple perspectives to explore anatomy and compare
  • flexibility to choose your approach, rate, sequence and depth of learning
  • interactive text, labels and clinical questions
  • new concepts in anatomy and relevant clinical applications
  • capacity to 'build' systems, 'map' regions, 'dissect' layers and 'trace' images
  • a self learning resource with a solid educational basis
  • has a simple and consistent navigation system

Testimonials

  • “ The anatomical content is superb. Images (dissection, imaging etc.) are beautiful.”

    1st Year Medical Student Feedback The University of Melbourne, International Medical Education Journal 3 (1) 2001
  • “The explanations are very clear and highly comprehensive. Just love the clinical relevance and concise exam style questions with answers and explanatory diagrams.”

    1st Year Medical Student Feedback The University of Melbourne, International Medical Education Journal 3 (1) 2001
  • “Anatomedia is like a combination of an atlas and text book which is fantastic. It saves you having to flip. I found it much more engaging than a text book.”

    1st Year Medical Student Feedback The University of Melbourne, International Medical Education Journal 3 (1) 2001
  • "An@tomedia is the best multimedia resource I've ever seen. Better the Encyclopedia Britanica. I'm serious.”

    1st Year Medical Student Feedback The University of Melbourne, International Medical Education Journal 3 (1) 2001
  • “An@tomedia would have revolutionised my student days."

    A. Marusic The Lancet
  • “An@tomedia will appeal not only to medical students, but also to medical practitioners. Health-care workers will find it useful for clinical practice and for communication with patients. I also recommend An@tomedia to teachers from countries where dissection is not done for cultural, financial, or other reasons”

    A. Marusic The Lancet
  • "A high quality product, of relevance to Universities and medical professionals, that addresses learning needs in a way not previously possible"

    AUTC review Institute for Interactive Media and Learning, University of Technology, Sydney
  • "An@tomedia is cited as an example of: 'outstanding innovation in teaching & learning, underpinned by an understanding of student learning in the discipline."

    AUTC review Institute for Interactive Media and Learning, University of Technology, Sydney
  • “an@tomedia was the most comprehensive resource for the surgical trainee, offering a range of didactic and interactive material.”

    Choi, Tamblyn & Stringer E-resources for surgical anatomy
  • “I used Anatomedia to guide our second-year problem-based learning tutorial and my 7 classmates were raving about it...About 5 minutes in they all were asking where and how they could get it!!”

    Daniel Jones Graduate Medicine, Bond University
  • “The best feature is the layered approach to dissection combined with the superb quality of the images”

    Independent expert reviewer International Medical Education Journal 3 (1), 2001
  • “Highlights are its interactive format and quantity of information.”

    Independent expert reviewer International Medical Education Journal 3 (1), 2001
  • “I have seen many resources on anatomy, but this one beats the lot. The authors are real experts and should be congratulated"

    Independent expert reviewer International Medical Education Journal 3 (1), 2001
  • “This is unquestionably the best resource relating to gross anatomy that I have seen.”

    Independent expert reviewer International Medical Education Journal 3 (1), 2001
  • “I have seen many resources on anatomy, but this one beats the lot. The authors are real experts and should be congratulated”

    Prof Yousef Sadeghi Head of Department, Anatomy & Biology, Shahid Baheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran
  • "I am really impressed with the blend of dissection, imaging, regional and systems approaches. In my experience studying and teaching anatomy, I haven't come across a resource that ties the theoretical concepts in anatomy with practical aspects as Anatomedia does"

    Scott Farrell University of Newcastle, 2016
  • “Meddies have no fear, An@tomedia is here. No student should be without General Anatomy, that guides you through principles of dissection and the anatomical basis of techniques to perform general procedures such as wound closures, nerve blocks and arterial puncture”.

    University of Melbourne Medical Students’ Society (UMMSS) Review
  • “Imaging, that which is most mystifying to many medical students (of all years), is made so breathtakingly clear in an@tomedia that I regret not using it earlier”.

    University of Melbourne Medical Students’ Society (UMMSS) Review
  • “An@tomedia is an important tool in modern-day study of medicine”.

    University of Melbourne Medical Students’ Society (UMMSS) Review
  • “This program is simple yet complex… allowing efficient anatomy study outside of class.”
