New Anatomy Learning Center Opens

The days of carrying hefty, 1,500-page Gray's Anatomy textbooks may be long gone, but not much more has changed over the decades in how medical students learn anatomy - until now. Students at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have just begun studies in a new, state-of-the-art anatomy learning center equipped with interactive iPad textbooks, giant video displays and roving cameras that will allow them to observe, discover, and come to understand, in a new way, the complex architecture of the human body.
