The Dana Medical Library is currently displaying an exhibit that honors multi-generation physician families in Vermont. “Multi-Generation Vermont Physician Families: Graduates of the UVM College of Medicine” highlights the Bove, Irwin, Terrien, and Upton families and is on view until April. Stop by the Library to view this informative exhibit.
Created by Professor Robert Whitaker, this website was designed to teach students about anatomy. Visitors to the site will find a range of materials, including diagrams, illustrations, quizzes, tips, mnemonics, and so on. On the homepage, visitors will find a What’s New area, which includes podcasts that deal with subjects such as the small muscles of the hand and the anatomy of the posterior forearm. Other sections on the homepage include Head & Neck, Thorax, Abdomen, Arm, and Leg. Each of these sections includes dozens of illustrations, along with some useful Brain Training Games. These games are designed to increase comprehension of the materials covered in each area. Moving on, the Lectures area includes talks such as “Parasympathetic Supply of the Head,” “Cortical Control of Cranial Nerves,” and several others. The site is rounded out by a collection of iPhone and iPad apps, along with a set of detailed flash cards.
