Gross anatomy at East Tennessee State University’s medical school used to involve referring back to several books, notes and other materials while students’ gloved hands were covered in fluid from dissecting a cadaver. Now iPads attached to swivel arms connected to the dissection tables have eliminated the need for multiple paper sources now. The tablet computers were first used in the James H. Quillen College of Medicine’s medical human gross anatomy and embryology course this semester. Each first-year medical student must take this course. http://www.johnsoncitypress.com/Living/article.php?id=103213
