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 in nine modules 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).

Nine modules

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

Four perspectives

To help understand both the theoretical & practical aspects of anatomy, designed to complement any course.

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

Testimonials

  • “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
  • “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
  • “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
  • "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"

  • “ 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
  • “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”

  • “I have seen many resources on anatomy, but this one beats the lot. The authors are real experts and should be congratulated”

  • “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”.
