Body of knowledge

SlateEllen Kendall, a first-year medical student, spoke about how learning anatomy without cadavers, via Microsoft HoloLens and HoloAnatomy® Software, continued seamlessly when COVID-19 forced classes to meet remotely. Mark Griswold, a professor of radiology in the School of Medicine, said students usually don their headsets and learn anatomy together in the same room on campus, but when classes went online, the university shipped 185 HoloLenses to first-year students so their education could continue uninterrupted.
