College of Medicine and Health Sciences-Wollo University is now starting to use the latest teaching advanced technology Anatomage table to teach the basic sciences; mainly Gross Anatomy, Histology and Physiology for undergraduate and postgraduate medical and health sciences students.
This Anatomage table, costing more than 7 million birr, is built with state-of-the-art technology to combine medicine with computer technology. It contains more than 5,600 human body sections, full human cadaver dissection videos, 3D-pictures, microscopic slides, body function videos, as well as CT and MRI images. This technology replaces the humand body cadaver, which is the traditional way of teaching in medical education, the Anatomage table gives ample opportunity for students to make multi-level-multi-angle observations of anatomical structures.
Anatomage will also be an excellent resource for clinicians who can now refer to the thousands of latest CT and MRI images it contains. Incorporation of such advanced technology into the education system is an innovative way out to achieve the Center of Excellence in Health Sciences and Medical education at Wollo University.
Our senior anatomist, Dr Melese Shenkut and Mr Hussien Abdu are now on providing a five days training for anatomay staff about how to operate Anatomage table for practical teaching. At the end of the training, they will be officially become familiarized with how to operate the Anatomage table.
We are on moving faster!
