Open Clinical Anatomy Course: Is This the Future of Medical Education?

Natalie Lafferty | E-LIME | January 16, 2012

Stanford University will be running an open course on Clinical Anatomy as part of it’s growing offering of open educational courses. The first clinical anatomy course will focus on the upper limb and kicks off on the 5th March with more courses being planned including one on the anatomy of the head and neck.

So is this the first of many more open medical education courses to come? Is anyone in the UK planning on doing anything like this in medicine? Are any UK medical students planning on signing up for the stanford course?
