Anatomy Education Facility

Our Anatomy Education Facility combines state-of-the-art technologies with the patient-centered values and collaborative approach to learning that have long distinguished a Tufts medical education. This spacious and light-filled laboratory will provide:

  • 40 state-of-the-art dissection tables and 2 prosection tables
  • 4 locker rooms with showers
  • An advanced anatomy laboratory with 6 dissection tables

The Anatomy Education Facility will also include a state-of-the-art Technology-Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) classroom, creating a central location for team-based learning with room for 72 students, or approximately one-third of the class.

Gross Anatomy

The knowledge and experiences gained through this hands-on involvement cannot be acquired from a book or a computer but must be gained through direct practice in an anatomy lab. The quality of instruction and learning environment in the gross anatomy course is pivotal to the entire medical school experience.

Needs include:

  • Digital technology to enable student teams to work together, such as:
    • 84 individual iPads connected to 23 shared screens, and a common screen connecting all workstations, to help faculty display the work of specific teams to the entire classroom.
    • 1 GoPro digital video camera mounted on head harnesses to allow faculty to project images from a prosection to the entire class while keeping their hands free.
  • An additional Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) classroom with at least 11 digitally equipped workstations for team-based learning with digitally equipped workstations that would accommodate at least 100 students. The TEAL classroom enables faculty to provide a personalized, interactive learning experience to a large group, while students can practice the teamwork and communications skills they will need to work in clinical teams.

Aviva Must, PhD, Morton A. Madoff Professor

“I see the Morton A. Madoff Professorship as both a great honor and a responsibility. Mort’s vision, which I had the pleasure of experiencing firsthand, was to promote the integration and dialogue between public health and health care, and thereby advance population health for all persons. The Madoff Professorship allows me to carry those ideals forward as a Tufts leader in public health research and education.”

Annetta Grisard-Schrafl, J94P, trustee emerita

“Establishing a professorship at Tufts University School of Medicine was our way of boosting the school’s reputation and development. I know Tufts competes with better funded institutions for the best faculty and students, so I’m proud to have been part of bringing Phil Haydon, PhD, the chair of the Department of Neuroscience, to the faculty. He’s a star who has attracted other great professors to the department."
