Project goal

This project aimed to achieve useful means in enhancing learning outcomes within the combination of face-to-face teaching; as a resource used to further equip medical students with extensive knowledge in the pathophysiological consequences that excessive alcohol ingestion has in relation to the human body. 


Medical students


I worked closely with Dr. Richard Oparka viewing specimen in his lab and discussing education goals for his students. Using multiple programs I created 3D models of diseased organs to provide students with a 360 interactive view of the organs. Combined with photographs provided by Dr. Richard Oparka, 2D illustrations and 3D illustrations I created a website for the students. A survey was conducted upon 

completion of the project indicating that student's learning outcomes improved.

The digital organ models were 3D printed and painted. These were used by a pathologist in Ninewells Teaching Hospital & Medical School as a physical teaching aide for medical students.
