This is a great resource for students in Anatomy & Physiology classes to review and work on basic histology slides. While there are many histology websites out there, this one is especially helpful because each image is annotated and includes a pronunction guide and a key to root words.

The website provides links to a series of histology images and descriptions that are relevant to pre-health students enrolled in anatomy courses. It would be great to include pathology so that students would see the aplication of histology.

Great site and I like the fact that there are structures for students to identify in the sections.  For my Physiology course the RBC and vessels are particularly helpful for students to visualize how blood moves thru the body.

Kim Huey, Drake University

I'll be adding selections from this site into my moodle A&P course as another resrouce for students as they work through their histology studies.

Jeff DeJongh, Cony High School

Great resource and will prove very helpful for students studying basic histology.


I love this website. Students can pick the topic they are studying and choose which images to focus on. There are many wonderful images to view. It is great for Anatomy students in college.

Tracey Magrann, National University

Histology is an extremely difficult subject for entry level anatomy and physiology students. This website describes some tissues quite well and enables students to self quiz. In addition, it has been useful for me in brushing up on my own histological knowledge. It covers some of the basic tissues along with pathological comparisons.

Deborah Miller, D.C., Chattahoochee Technical College

A quote from the site: "This site introduces basic concepts of histology actively, without having to schedule classroom time." I plan to use it as such. In addition, because some slides in this nicely organized, tidy site are pathological, it is hoped that the students will be able to find connections with the material.
