Exploring 3D Anatomy

Course Details

Course Trailer

You will learn how to improve your observation skills, and in particular, your visual and haptic observation ability. Iain and Leonard will demonstrate the exercises that you will follow. We begin with visualisation exercises, then proceed to visual and haptic observation exercises and finish with the Haptico-visual observation and drawing method (HVOD), taught step-by-step.

No prior knowledge of anatomy or drawing is required.

Course Information

The evidence-based activities and exercises in this course have been designed to support the development of your observational skills, your 3D spatial awareness, and your conceptualisation 3D human anatomy. This understanding can be applied to your current studies and future clinical practice.

We will guide you through a series of simple, practical and very effective learning exercises using everyday household objects, as well as the occasional use of your own anatomy. Iain and Leonard’s video demonstrations will guide you through the practical exercises. You will be able to reflect upon and even share your experiences with others throughout the course if you wish.

There are strong links between critical observation, spatial abilities and anatomy learning within the educational literature. To examine, diagnose and treat patients it is essential for clinicians and healthcare professionals to gain a comprehensive understanding of the structural and functional anatomy of the human body. Our bodies exist in three dimensions. To effectively study human anatomy, it is therefore essential to develop an understanding of the three-dimensional spatial arrangement of the body’s anatomical regions, systems, and structures.
