SGL I - Integrated Musculoskeletal Anatomy: Welcome

Selected library resources and authoritative information sources to support the Integrated Musculoskeletal Anatomy course/block

Block Goals

The Integrated Musculoskeletal Anatomy (IMA) block provides a broad orientation to the structural organization of the human body at the macroscopic and microscopic levels. This knowledge and its application in clinical scenarios will serve as the foundation for physical examination and functional assessment of the human body. It will also assist in the interpretation of diagnostic imaging and complement the development of clinical acumen and skill mastery throughout subsequent preclinical courses and clerkship experiences.

Using Models @ Hope Brings Strength Libraries

  • Most anatomy models are kept on the table across from the Hope Brings Strength Library's service desk or on top of the short glass cabinet in the middle of the library. We ask that you return the model to its original location after use.
  • Some models (those with a lot of loose parts) are kept in the glass case beside the service desk.
  • Male and female reproductive system torsos are kept behind the service desk. Ask for these at the service desk.
  • A spine and full-sized skeleton model are available at the Sewell Learning Commons.   
  • Models are tagged with QR codes which link to the correlating section of Netter Atlas of Anatomy, or in some instances an alternative text.
  • Models must be used in the library.
