New HoloAnatomy® Partners Announced
Case Western Reserve University announces five new academic partners who are actively using the HoloAnatomy® Software Suite in their anatomy curriculum. These partners include Oxford University, the top ranked anatomy program in the world, Northwestern University, California Health Sciences University (CHSU), Finger Lakes Community College (FLCC), and Texas Christian University–University of North Texas Health Science Center (TCU and UNTHSC) School of Medicine.
Oxford’s Director of Human Anatomy Thomas D. Cosker said his institution intends to use the HoloAnatomy® Software Suite throughout medical students’ time at the university—both during instructional time with faculty and also as they learn and study on their own. “Hololens is a superb innovation,” Cosker explained. “It brings textbooks and the written word to life, [and] it allows students to immerse themselves in an interactive learning environment.”
California Health Sciences University (CHSU) was the first academic institution to announce its plans to use the HoloAnatomy® Software Suite in educating students in its new Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program, which enrolls its first class this fall.“[The holographic-based] curriculum will revolutionize how students learn, enhancing their interactions during both simulated and real patient cases,” Leslie Catron, the college’s simulation center manager explained at the time of CHSU’s announcement. “Students can use holograms to easily separate and enlarge small organs and functions, giving them access to body systems like never before.”
New York’s Finger Lakes Community College (FLCC) began piloting Case Western Reserve’s software over two years ago, and found that students using the university’s program scored higher on exams than those in traditional classes using textbooks and plastic models. The collaboration began after FLCC biology professor Christine Parker learned about the technology and then saw it in action with the IC.
“We are proud of Professor Parker’s initiative and dedication to the continual improvement of the student experience,” the college’s president, Robert Nye, said at the time of FLCC’s announcement. “HoloAnatomy® is another tool that we hope will make science more accessible and engaging for our students.”
