The “Anatomy Roadshow” is baaaack and coming to a TUSM Learning Community near you! For the next few weeks, the Hirsh Library will be taking some bones, and other assorted anatomy resources “on the road”!

These tools include actual bones (!), online self-assessment modules and exclusive photographic atlases that aren’t available on the web.

Now that classes are in full swing, we’re highlighting some library resources for M1s to help you get in a good headspace so you can set off on the right foot!
Covering content across Step 1 subjects, these question banks are useful self-assessment tools even starting in your first year of medical school. We’re excited about our new subscription to Thieme MedOne, a question bank designed for M1 and M2 students that uses adaptive learning technology to help you identify gaps in knowledge and prepare for Step 1. Through the library, you also have access to LWW Health Library’s self assessment tools. For a list of Step 1 review books on reserve, see our medical board prep research guide.
The PBL Guide is a great place to start! For some LQs, you may need to look beyond the resources encompassed in the guide (for example, physical examination resources!). If you get stuck with a particularly tricky LQ, don’t forget that your PBL group’s librarian is available to help. See the M26 PBL Group Assignments on Canvas for your librarian’s name and email address. We also drop by your group once each semester, so that’s a great time to ask questions as well.
Anatomy will be here before you know it, and we’ve got you covered with a variety of study tools. Browse anatomy models available for 4-hour check out from the Library Service Desk. We have anatomy books and virtual anatomy models available online or for check out from reserve as well.
Attention first-year medical students! The HHSL collection includes several virtual and physical anatomy models to help you study this semester. Several anatomy models are on reserve and available for check out from the Library Service Desk, including real, plastic, and labeled skulls. (See our skull menu posted at the Service Desk!)
Through the HHSL website, you can also access virtual anatomy resources.
