There are several different types available, ranging in price, size, and level of complexity, so whether you're an elementary school teacher introducing kids to human anatomy, a med student studying for a test, or a doctor trying to help patients visualize a condition, there's something for you on this list.

Editor's Notes

October 01, 2019:

These models can be useful for different people, from medical students to elementary school teachers, so it's important to know what your needs are going in. Those who are teaching kids about basic anatomy can find options like the Learning Resources Cross Section that are durable and easy to understand. Med students looking for a good study tool, on the other hand, will want a more detailed option like the Vision Scientific Regional, that can bring the diagrams from an anatomy textbook into three-dimensional context. Make sure to check the size before you buy, as some models are life-size or larger, while others are scaled down.
