Over 1,700 images added to rapidly expanding medical student website
 

 

Thieme’s WinkingSkull.com has been expanded to feature more than 1,700 images, including illustrations from Atlas of Anatomy as well as clinical material such as MRIs, CT scans and sectional anatomy with explanatory schematics. Users gain access to all these images by subscribing to a PRO plan on the website.

“This new addition to the site expands on an already successful base. And now users have the opportunity to speedily increase their knowledge about the human body using almost 2,000 stunning illustrations from Atlas of Anatomy,” states Cathrin Weinstein, MD, Editorial Director, Educational Products, Thieme Publishers.

With this site, users can measure their knowledge using timed tests, and then compare their scores against those of other users. The web-based self-study aid gives students the ability to drag and drop labels alongside each illustration and to turn labels on and off. Additional features include a zoom function that clearly presents intricate details, thereby simplifying difficult material.   

 

The recently launched online learning tool complements Atlas of Anatomy, the award-winning atlas based on the work of Michael Schuenke, Erik Schulte, and Udo Schumacher and edited by Anne M. Gilroy, Brian R. MacPherson, and Lawrence M. Ross. Individuals or institutions may subscribe to a PRO plan on WinkingSkull.com for the duration that best suits their educational needs.

Thousands of vibrant images and a unique self-testing tool make Winking Skull PRO an ideal companion for students, medical professionals, and anyone interested in health science.
