Anatomy for biomedical engineers

Stephen W. Carmichael, Richard A. Robb

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a perceived need for anatomy instruction for graduate students enrolled in a biomedical engineering program. This appeared especially important for students interested in and using medical images. These students typically did not have a strong background in biology. The authors arranged for students to dissect regions of the body that were of particular interest to them. Following completion of all the dissections, the students presented what they had: learned to the entire class in the anatomy laboratory. This course has fulfilled an important need for our students.
