Our team of award-winning, energetic, tech-savvy authors revolutionize anatomy education. Each of our authors draw on a lifetime of experience and personal resources to continue to enrich AnatomyOne with more images, more review questions, more Clinical Insights, and more innovative ways to help students master gross anatomy.
AnatomyOne brings together all the content and learning experiences students need to master anatomy and all the resources faculty need to teach anatomy.
Dr. David Morton and Professor Mark Nielsen recognized that while an abundance of fantastic anatomy resources are available, most do not adequately meet the needs of students and faculty. Traditional anatomy products have not incorporated technology to improve the learning process. In addition, students have less time dedicated to anatomy and need more efficient tools to help them grasp crucial concepts. AnatomyOne synthesizes all the elements required for proficiency into one online learning experience.
Traditional anatomy resources exist in islands (text, atlases, review guides, dissection guides, etc,) that do not communicate with each other. AnatomyOne provides an online learning experience that eliminates the separations between these islands and bridges these resources to help students master anatomy in the most efficient way possible. Instead of a stack of books, AnatomyOne delivers the elements students really need and navigates to exactly what they’re looking for with just one click.
