AceAnatomy applies the principles of gamification to enhance engagement, memory, and motivation for students of gross anatomy.
With AceAnatomy as a study tool, students are presented and quizzed on information broken down into attainable modules organized by progressive level of detail. Users can select and adapt content and are provided with frequent feedback as they learn and progress. The AceAnatomy leaderboard fosters community among classmates and peers without holding students back from self-directed study.
Ace Anatomy educational content is reviewed (and corrected) by Professor Emeritus John A. McNulty. Dr. McNulty received his Ph.D. in Biology (Marine Biology) from the University of Southern California in 1976, and was faculty at the Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and Fellow of the Leischner Institute of Medical Education for 40 years. Dr. McNulty’s research has been awarded funds from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and US Department of Agriculture. He co-founded the Loyola University Medical Education Network (LUMEN) and the Africa Medical Education Network (AMEN), and was elected Fellow of the American Association of Anatomists. Dr. McNulty resides in Chicago, but travels frequently to Africa to teach gross anatomy as an associate of Project Harambee.
