In this course, students will explore digital technologies used by Stanford medical students as they prepare for careers in the health sciences, and by surgeons in the treatment and care of patients. Though cadaver specimens are the foundation of instruction at Stanford, in this online version of the course, digital resources such as the Anatomage 3D Virtual Anatomy Dissection Table of cadaver material, 3D interactive anatomy apps of exceptional models, and digital diagnostic visualization systems will provide the student and practitioner with data for visualizing the spatial relationships between anatomical structures and the full extent of specific anatomy that may be difficult to explore on the cadaver. Ultimately this leads to better understanding of anatomy and improved patient care. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures and common clinical conditions affecting the lower limb, such as repetitive stress injuries to tendons and joints. Students will also observe, via videos, surgical procedures of the hip and knee. This course offers students an insight into the combination of anatomy resources and imaging that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

This course is the first in a series on the clinical application of human anatomy. Each course focuses on a different area—the lower limb (Fall 2021), the abdomen (Winter 2022), the eye (Spring 2022), and the neck (Summer 2022). While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.

Adjunct Professor, Division of Clinical Anatomy, Department of Surgery, Stanford School of Medicine

Bruce Fogel develops, directs, and teaches undergraduate, medical school, and outreach courses at Stanford. He emphasizes the clinical relevance of anatomy as it pertains to the treatment of traumatic and pathological conditions.

Division Chief and Professor, Division of Clinical Anatomy, Stanford School of Medicine

Sakti Srivastava is director of the Cohn BioSkills Lab and the SIMdesign Program. He focuses on the development of learning technologies and the use of digital media to enhance the traditional teaching of anatomy.
