Anatomy Atlases: The educational objectives provided in these digital atlases of Anatomy, are based on the ACGME General Competencies. The site addresses the continuum of anatomy education as it was developed to assist with medical student education, residents, fellows, faculty and providers. The curator of the digital library is Ronald A. Bergman, M.D., M.S., Ph.D., emeritus faculty from the University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine. These atlases focus on gross human anatomy, microscopic anatomy, the anatomy of first aid and trauma related injuries and an encyclopedia of anatomic variation. Bone videos are included.
