Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy

Need to bone up on human anatomy? 

Savitt Medical Library provides access to Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy, a suite of videos recorded to reveal the 3D quality of each specimen. The recordings of real, unembalmed human cadavers demonstrate the structure of the body, as well as the natural movements of its muscles, tendons, and joints. Dissections are performed by skilled clinical anatomists. Review sections are also provided so that you can test yourself on your knowledge of anatomy.

Bates' Visual Guide to Physical Examination

You asked for it, we got it! Savitt Library purchased the new, updated version of Bates' Visual Guide to Physical Examination. Bates is a collection of videos covering different types of physical examination of patients, including head to toe assessments, general survey and vital signs, and assessment by specific body areas (skin; head, eyes and ears; nose, mouth and neck; thorax and lungs; etc.) and body systems (cardiovascular; peripheral vascular; musculoskeletal, nervous; etc.). Different age groups are presented as well as gender-specific topics.
Included in this streaming video collection are the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) videos which allow the viewer to develop an assessment, or differential diagnosis, and provide an appropriate diagnostic workup.  These exercises provide an opportunity to observe a patient encounter and practice clinical reasoning skills.
