Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy contains videos to supplement and reinforce information learned in dissection and anatomy courses. 
Videos might be viewed prior to dissection or after-the-fact to review. Acland’s is also popular among nursing and allied health students as a way to prepare and review in anatomy courses.
Acland’s is divided into 5 broad volumes:
  • Volume 1: The Upper Extremity
  • Volume 2: The Lower Extremity
  • Volume 3: The Trunk
  • Volume 4: The Head & Neck
  • Volume 5: The Internal Organs

Each of these sections is divided into a section of the anatomy which are further divided into videos about a more specific piece of the human anatomy.  The organization of videos facilitates browsing and moving between topics.
Each narrated video is approximately 1 to 5 minutes in length and can be viewed in order or by jumping around between sections.
Often, labels will appear during the video to emphasize a point or draw the viewer’s attention to the topic in question.  You’ll also notice above each video tools to download a PDF transcript of the narration, to email a link to yourself and to add the video to your favorites.
Emailed links can be sent to up to 5 people and will last 3 days.  To create a list of favorites you’ll need to create a personal account within Acland’s which you can do by clicking on My Favorites.  Do not click Log Out as this will disconnect you from USD’s subscription.
