Anatomy and physiology courses benefit greatly from the use anatomical models and skeletons. Quality models show detailed morphology of organs and complete body systems. Models simplify the identification of anatomical structures, organ positioning within the body cavity, and the relationship between structure and function. Many models can be disassembled, allowing students to explore internal structures. Additionally, they are an excellent reference tool for identifying small and indistinct structures.

Anatomy and physiology is frequently organized and taught by body system. To help you plan and teach, here are our top-selling anatomical body systems models. Click on the model picture or item number for more details.
