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.
- Atlas of Human Anatomy: Views of plate images are provided.
- Atlas of Human Anatomy in Cross Section: A large number of diagrams and digital images are included in this section of the atlas.
- Atlas of Microscopic Anatomy – A Companion to Histology and Neuroanatomy: This functional approach includes slides of various body systems such as digestive, cardiovascular, lymphatic, etc.
- Anatomy of First Aid - A Case Study Approach: A digital library of many “first aid” and “trauma” cases including detailed illustrations of the respective anatomy and the medical processes involved. Some of the more involved cases include bladder catheterization; abdominal wound with protruding viscera; injury to thigh with compound (open) fracture of femur and use of tourniquet; and other trauma related injuries such as amputation.
- Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation: An encyclopedia of human Muscular, Cardiovascular, Nervous, Skeletal, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary and Respiratory Systems.
