Schriever, LA – Fletcher Technical Community College has been awarded a State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) grant for an Anatomage Table. As explained at https://www.anatomage.com/table/, the Anatomage Table is the only fully segmented real human 3D anatomy system. Users can visualize anatomy exactly as they would on a fresh cadaver. Individual structures are reconstructed in accurate 3D, resulting in an unprecedented level of real accurate anatomy, dissectible in 3D. Anatomy is presented as a fully interactive, life-sized touch screen experience, in operatory bed form. The Table allows for exploration and learning of human anatomy beyond what any cadaver could offer.

“Fletcher continues to strive to find new and innovative ways to educate our students,” commented Fletcher Chancellor Dr. Kristine Strickland. “We are excited about the addition of the Anatomage Table for our nursing and allied health students. This technology will significantly enhance the education and training our students receive, and will ensure that our graduates will be highly prepared for their health care career and will be prepared to provide our community with the best care possible.”

The Anatomage Table is used in institutions such as the University of Miami, Boston University, the University of Illinois, Stanford University, and the Mayo Clinic (FL), as well as news outlets such as TED Talks, PBS, the BBC, Forbes, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

The table will be in use this fall by Fletcher’s Nursing, Surgical Technology, Cardiopulmonary, and Biology students.
