This week we hit a major milestone at Complete Anatomy Headquarters: our community reached an incredible 1,000,000 awesome anatomy enthusiasts! So what exactly does this mean for global anatomy learning?

  • Students, educators, professionals and patients are becoming more informed on the 3-dimensional complexities of the human body with our world-leading models, and delivering better results both in the classroom, and the clinic.
  • A whole new generation of students are gaining access to, and engaging with, anatomy like no medical learning resource before, through our multi-platform availability.
  • Academics are opening the door to our entirely new interactive publishing platform, which facilitates a global network of healthcare professionals in sharing research and knowledge of human anatomy.

So how did we get here, and what’s next?

2015: The Big Bang

Building on the success of its predecessor Essential Anatomy, and after months of intensive development, Apple invited us on stage to demo next-generation 3D anatomy atlas Complete Anatomy on their brand-new iPad Pro. It catapulted the brand into the spotlight and gave birth to what is now the world’s most advanced 3D anatomy platform.

At its launch, presenter Irene Walsh proclaimed that Complete Anatomy would:

“Increase medical understanding and improve patient care, from remote villages to the top hospitals and universities in the world”

This dream was about to become a reality…
