PHILIPPI, W.Va. – Anatomy students at Alderson Broaddus University have a new way to improve their skills thanks to a donor.

An AB graduate donated an Anatomage Table, a virtual cadaver table designed to allow students to learn more about human anatomy.

Staff members at the school said blending the table in with their current curriculum allows for greater opportunity for students there.

“There are some schools that have had to discontinue their cadavers because of the COVID crisis. So as of right now, we’re still doing in person instruction in the cadaver lab and using the table along with it,” said AB professor Alan Cashell.

AB officials said more than 400 students in a range of programs are expected to be able to use the table.
