Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy now available to NHS staff via OpenAthens

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy is popular with practicing surgeons and physicians as an accessible source of anatomical information featuring simple language and realistic, 3D visuals. This resource can be used as an adjunct to dissection and for reviewing learning, or to re-learn clinically relevant anatomical structures. It is also a good resource for allied health practitioners who don’t have access to dissection facilities, as the Video Atlas provides an appreciation of the real human body and a direct understanding of the mechanics of body movement.

The videos are organised in 5 volumes: the upper extremity, the lower extremity, the trunk, the head and neck, and the internal organs. Exams are available for each volume so you can test your learning. To access the exams and save videos to your favourites you will need to register for a personal account.

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy can be accessed offsite or on your mobile or tablet if you sign in with your OpenAthens account.  To do this, select Sign in via: OpenAthens on the Acland’s homepage and then choose: ‘OpenAthens Federation’ from the Federation menu and ‘St George’s Hospital NHS Trust’ from the Institution menu, click select and enter your OpenAthens username and password when prompted.

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy can be accessed via the Library’s Databases page.
