Bates’ Visual Guide to Physical Examination provides demonstrations of head-to-toe and systems-based physical examination techniques. It contains more than 8 hours of content, broken down into volumes based on regional anatomy, and then short chapters that review anatomy and demonstrate proper examination. Links can be made to the entire resource, single volumes, or single chapters. Also included are five videos designed to help students prepare for Objective Structured Clinical Examinations, or OSCEs, by testing their clinical reasoning skills. Available on any computer or device connected to Dartmouth/DHMC’s network until April 24, 2014, at http://www.batesvisualguide.com
Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy presents dissections of unembalmed human bodies in five volumes. The specimens rotate relative to the camera, giving a three-dimensional view. For each part of the body, the bones are shown first, then joints and their movements, then the muscles, and then the blood vessels and nerves. Individuals can register for a personal account and then take self-examinations.
