Anatomical models available for check out from the library.


Whether you are a tactile learner or more interested in using advanced technology to learn anatomy, there are so many resources out there and very few of them are able to keep up to date with changing technology and classroom curriculum. So, below I've listed some resources that have been recommended to me by professors and students.
