Abstract Second Life™ provides an opportunity for the unique experience of a virtual anatomy laboratory. We propose a course in Second Life that will serve as a transition between undergraduate systems-based anatomy and professional regional-based anatomy courses. Students will study anatomy modules independently and meet weekly in the virtual anatomy laboratory to participate in team-based learning sessions. This virtual small group component is designed to promote critical discussion of anatomical concepts and clinical relevancy. ¬†Participants will gain an understanding of our approaches toward the development of this course, and its potential for inter-institutional application for undergraduates interested in medical professional programs.¬†¬†
