Anatomy Lab

Virtual Anatomy Lab

The Virtual Anatomy Lab in Magruder Hall features six advanced virtual anatomy tables. The 84-inch digital screens allow for life-size virtual displays and an in-depth view of major structures in the body, such as the heart, lungs, abdomen and pelvis.

You can also participate in interactive dissections and virtual arthroscopy, as well as view blood-flow simulation and fly-through simulations in the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract and chambers of the heart.

Athletic Training Clinical Sites

Truman has three on-campus athletic training clinical sites (Health Sciences Athletic Training Room, Kennels Athletic Training Room, and the Student Health Center) and three off-campus clinical sites (local high school and two medical clinics). Athletic training students use these sites to hone their skills under the supervision of an approved clinical instructor.

Human Anatomy Laboratory (at A.T. Still University)

In partnership with A.T. Still University (the local medical school), students taking our Human Anatomy course (BIOL 365) have access to a human cadaver-based laboratory.

Only 4% of undergraduate programs in the nation offer cadaver-based anatomy.
