Anatomical Sciences Education Vol. 5, Issue 5, 2012 Cover Image


A group of third-year undergraduate veterinary medicine students with their instructor from the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London in the United Kingdom learn equine anatomy using “Anato-Rug”. This innovative tool depicting topographical anatomy and key areas for lung, heart, and gastrointestinal auscultation on a live horse is described in this issue of ASE. Senior veterinary medicine student, Ms. Francesca Braid and her teachers Drs. Sarah Williams and Renate Weller evaluate the students' perceptions, education outcomes, and benefits in using this low-fidelity simulation tool.
