Strong Points: Very well organized
Weak Points: Limited accessibility without paid subscription
Instant Anatomy is a well organized and easy-to-navigate resource for learning about human anatomy. The website divides the body into five broad categories: head and neck, thorax, abdomen, upper limb, and lower limb. Within each of these broad categories are further subdivisions, allowing the user to explore more specific features such as organs, nerves, and vasculature residing within that system. The website has a quiz feature that allows users to test their knowledge and additional information in the form of lectures and both audio and video podcasts. There are also accompanying Apple and Android apps for users on the go. Unfortunately, there are limited questions and podcasts available for users who are not subscribers. But for a monthly fee, subscribers obtain access to the full materials provided on the site. Even with the limited free resources, Instant Anatomy is a great resource for refreshing your knowledge of human anatomy.
