    Hi everyone,

    I've just put a new anatomy discussion forum on <a href="http://www.dissectionroom.com" target="_blank">www.dissectionroom.com</a> for students to ask anatomy questions.

    I've persuaded the anatomy department at Cambridge uni in England to support this site so you should get pretty good answers to your questions.

    If you have a group of students that would like a private group on the discussion board (students about to start the anaomy course from Cambridge University have this kind of group) let me know. I think this will be a great way mimic small group teaching sessions that you can continue when you not together. It also means that you can ask each other quite detailed questions and reply to them at your convenience.

    We're also moving over to a new format with a more didactic style of tutorial. We've had lots of positive feedback on the hand anatomy but many said it was to simplified. The new style is implement in our first tutorial The Anatomy of the Vertebral Column, and it a lot more detailed. You'll need sound turned on in order to hear the narration.

    The next tutorial covering the entire upper limb is nearly completed and should be up this week sometime.

    Your opinons and feedback are always appreciated. Please report any anatomical errors, inconsistancies or confusion that you find so we can make the tutorials as clear and accurate as possible.

    Thanks femtochemistry.

    I have set up a poll so that students can vote on which tutorials they would like developed next. At the moment it looks like its going to be cranial nerves...

    You can vote at: <a href="http://www.dissectionroom.com/phpBB-2.0.0/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=10" target="_blank">next tutorial poll</a>

    I just browsed through everything and this site looks wonderful! I figure I'll register and start using it in August when I start med school. Are you advertising the site in any way so that more people will join?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'm afraid I won't be advertising the site as we don't have a budget at the moment. You can read about how to help promote dissectionroom.com <a href="http://www.dissectionroom.com/phpBB-2.0.0/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=15" target="_blank">here</a>

    Please let your colleagues know about the site if you are able. I think the forum could be a useful resource for people to help each other out with anatomy questions if enough people join up. If you sign up to the forum I'll send out an email to all the members as I complete each tutorial. The next one should be finished this week.

    New tutorial on the anterior compartment of the arm now up on www.newmediamedicine.com (the new home for dissectionroom.com's tutorials).

    I'm still trying to improve the tutorial so please let me know what you think about it or any problems you have by posting on the feedback forum.

    Chris
