St. Thomas students learning through use of virtual cadavers

February 20, 2019 05:48 PM

A first-of-its kind technology in the Twin Cities is helping students at the University of St. Thomas prepare for their medical careers.

The students are using life-size, touch-screen virtual cadavers.


They essentially function like huge iPads, letting students dissect any part of the body and cut from any angle. Multiple students can view the lesson at once.

And instructors say the technology will better help prepare students than the limited view provided by textbooks or plastic models.
