Should I choose the Regional or Systemic Undergraduate Course?

The Undergraduate Human Anatomy Systemic and Regional courses are suitable for new users without a basic knowledge of anatomy, students taking anatomy for the first time, or for those desiring an in-depth and thorough anatomy review prior to beginning an upper division course. Both courses contain the same level of content information, however the teaching resources (Lectures, Recordings, Screens and Quizzes) are arranged differently.

I cannot use the Cut Tool on organs.

Right now, the Cut Tool in Complete Anatomy is not compatible with organs. We’re working on this, and hope to have an update for you in the future. You can cut all other anatomical structures in the model, and we hope this helps you in your anatomical education! If you need to cut through the heart, check out Complete Heart which allows you to do this.

How do I access the full female model?

We are currently developing the full female model for Complete Anatomy. In the meantime, Complete Anatomy 2019 contains the female pelvic prosection.
