Thieme has launched WinkingSkull.com, a free, interactive resource for medical students. Organised by body region, the user-friendly study-aid draws on the ?Thieme Atlas of Anatomy? series. It contains all the must-know concepts students usually encounter during their first year in medical school.

"WinkingSkull.com is an excellent enhancement for students to hone their anatomy skills. What could be more beneficial than having your own personal tutor in a must-know subject such as anatomy? In today's academic environment, any assistance students can obtain helps to pave their way," states Michael Ehlert, national president of the American Medical Student Association.

An intuitive website design allows quick access to the region of interest. Users can turn labels on or off while studying. A testing feature allows users to drag and drop labels onto the anatomical illustrations while being timed. Users may view test results instantly to measure their proficiency of the material and compare scores with other users.
