Current Projects

1. Development of a proprietary virtual three dimensional interactive touch screen canine anatomy table (“APEX”) while utilizing Third semester RUSVM student deliberate practice and assessing student experience.

2. Implementation and assessment of the APEX table for supplementary learning of first semester RUSVM Gross Anatomy course. Objectives were to assess the effectiveness of APEX table as a studying tool for canine anatomy, and evaluate student and faculty perceptions surrounding the learning tool.  

3. Implementation and assessment of the veterinary virtual anatomy education software “IVALA™”. Traditional first semester veterinary gross anatomy course curricula at RUSVM was supplemented with a web based virtual anatomy program, IVALA™ in an effort to facilitate anatomic learning. The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between supplementary use of IVALA™ program and student exam scores as well as to measure student perception of the software.
