Traditional medical education is boring, complicated, difficult to understand, and difficult to express in images. In order to make teaching easier, medical students will learn and understand the shape, structure, and location of human organs by dissecting human specimens.
In the past, most studies of human anatomy used general specimens, because the anatomical specimens were soaked in formaldehyde solution for anticorrosion and solidification, and the anatomical specimens had a pungent smell, which affected the health of teachers and students and their motivation to learn. However, with the development of science and technology, a new way of preserving specimens has also emerged—Plastination. Compared with traditional formaldehyde solution specimens, human plastinated specimens are not only dry, non-toxic and odorless, but also easy to maintain and can be stored for a longer time, which can help medical schools save teaching resources. Plastinated specimens can also combine human body with art, without the influence of pungent smell, plasticized specimens are very suitable for use in biological science exhibition halls. Through artistic design and modeling, the beauty and dynamics of specimens are increased, reduces the people's fear psychology.
The purpose of studying human anatomy is to start from the actual needs of the medical profession, master the knowledge of normal human shape and structure, and lay a solid foundation for learning other basic medicine and clinical medicine courses.
