All current UTHSC faculty, staff, residents and students have access.

In first-year studies, the Video Atlas is productive and time efficient as a preview, as an adjunct to dissection, and as a review tool. It is also helpful for students who need to re-learn clinically relevant anatomy for their surgical rotations. Since surgeons in training must re-learn anatomy at many stages in their careers the Video Atlas is popular with interns and residents in surgical specialties.

Grant’s Dissection Videos are a collection of approximately 80 high-resolution videos, totaling more than 13 hours, demonstrate the Grant's method of cadaver dissection sequences, as described in the popular Grant’s Dissector textbook. Organized by body region, each video includes narration by Dr. Alan J. Detton and on-screen labeling and text. The videos show students what they are expected to achieve in lab, the steps required for each dissection, and the information they need to learn for practical exams.

PolicyMap is an interactive online mapping tool with which you may create maps, tables and graphs covering Demographics, Incomes & Spending, and more.

PolicyMap has several datasets that are exclusive to PolicyMap or licensed from an outside source. These datasets can be viewed on your custom site.

Premium data includes:

*Health Outcomes and Risk Factors. PolicyMap has created neighborhood-level estimates of how many people are affected by over a dozen health outcomes and risk factors, such as asthma, COPD, depression, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and stroke. Our researchers created these estimates using a statistical analysis of responses from the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System survey combined with geographic, socioeconomic, and demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

*Consumer Spending Habits data provides small area estimates of household expenditures for several major categories of household expenses, including total expenditures, food, food at home, food away from home, alcohol, education, and housing.

*Medical Spending Estimates combine information on payments for medical care from the Department of Health and Human Services' Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ) Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (2017) with demographic and health data from the U.S. Census American Community Survey (2013-2017).

*The Social Needs Index incorporates data from urban research firm New Localism Advisors and incorporates variables like population below poverty; households with rent or mortgages greater than 30% of their income; population not in the labor force; population with less than a high school degree and the Gini Index of concentrated income.

*The Community Healthcare Report provides thorough and up-to-date information about health conditions. The comprehensive report combines indicators of healthcare access, health behaviors, general health, morbidity, mortality, food security, and social determinants of health in a given county or health tract. This pdf report is dynamically created in moments and was designed with the input of experts in the field and with our extensive knowledge of the date related to the area.
