Anatomy in Clay ® Testing
Dr. Grisseel Cruz-Espaillat,M.D.,M.P.H., Christopher Stabile, Ed.D., Carlos Reyes and Keiser University
The study of anatomy at the college level is typically carried out through vivisection or dissection. The Anatomy in Clay ® learning system seeks to provide an alternative to this costly practice by allowing students to engage the muscular and skeletal systems of the human body through the use of clay modeling. The present study seeks to examine the Anatomy in Clay ® technique is a valuable addition to instruction in the field of anatomy and a potential alternative to the practices of dissection.
