Spanning 81 inches in length and providing the hands-on functionality of a tablet, the Anatomage Table offers a captivatingly interactive experience of anatomy and physiology that will benefit Bay View students of all ages. “With the Anatomage virtual dissection table, our students will be able to visualize and understand anatomical structures and interrelated concepts in as lifelike a manner as possible,” said Dr. Janell Johnson, the school’s Science Department Co-Chair. “This is a privilege usually reserved for medical and graduate students as well as organizations such as the Mayo Clinic.”

Acquiring an Anatomage Table at Bay View is a significant step in on our ongoing efforts to enhance the student experience in every way possible.”
