Review for Board Exams and Gross Anatomy Final Exam Spring 2017


This goal of this section is to make review of material in Gross Anatomy as efficient and user-friendly as possible.  Four general areas are reviewed: 1) Vertebra, Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerves,  2) Head and Neck Embryology, 3) Head Neck Clinical Anatomy and 4) Lower Extremity Clinical Anatomy.  For each area there are 1) summary charts, 2) practice questions, 3) Powerpoint files and 4) videos.  One approach to studying the material is to first look over the summary charts.  If all the material seems familiar, then try taking the related exam questions. You can also rapidly review the Powerpoint files that provide illustrations of the structures/clinical problems.    If some material seems unclear or unfamiliar, you can view the videos and listen to the soothing and erudite discourse.
