In this final lecture of the series, award-winning UC College of Medicine anatomy professor, Bruce Giffin, MD, and Cynthia Klestinec, PhD, professor in the Department of English at Miami University and an expert in Renaissance anatomy and dissection, discuss the pedagogical innovations introduced by Vesalius and others and how this revolutionized the teaching of anatomy for medical students and artists. Dr. Klestinec shares insights from her book, "Theaters of Anatomy: Students, Teachers, and Traditions of Dissection in Renaissance Venice" (2011). Dr. Giffin discusses the teaching of anatomy dating from Vesalius through today and looks ahead to the future, including the role of virtual dissection in the 21st century.
