Anatomy is exempt from text scarcity for it provides a powerful tool for checking and consulting the language of medicine. It is therefore useful just like pharmocopeia in drugs. It is also linked to various pages to refresh anatomical knowledge. All anatomical structures are presented with a dissector to locate their depth

One of the uses of animation is to simplify understanding. Hence those areas of medical education which are not easy to understand can be animated- e.g. countercurrent exchange mechanism in kidney physiology.

Slide 50

In this school two programs are paramount

          Electronic laboratories consist of all laboratories in Medicine (anatomy physiology, biochemistry, surgery, ophthalmology etc). They can be used for revision shortly before a professional examination so as to refresh the memory of the candidate and help him to pass his examination. Because practical in most medical schools carry higher marks, it is easy to pass the examination after this revision.

          Electronic objective structured clinical assessment (eOSCE)


Slide 51

Other programs which are more complex in nature are available at his school and they include

          eMidwife which is used to study extensively the art of baby delivery, including complicated ones

          eSurgeon used to study the processes involved in surgery

          eDoctor used to study clinical features in 100 common clinical conditions

          eSubjects (20) used to study both theory and practice of all medical subjects useful for repeat examinations etc


Slide 52

Electronic search remains the best of the services provided in electronic media using search engines.


This school provides search engines for all vital information and you can search the entire website in just one click. The search leads to dictionary information on all aspects of Medicine provided with, again, a modicum of text but a plethora of multimedia; JUST IDEAL FOR STUDENT FAST REVISION

ESM presently uses Java and that is not peculiar to it. Some other virtual programs use JAVA on internet which is not enabled in modern Windows operating systems. This is strong limitation to most users but can be circumvented. We need JAVA for two things
The very fine discriminatory audio localization
The encryptment of multimedia facilities
