Integrated Medical Animation at AAU

As innovations in medicine enter a new era in which interactions at cellular or molecular level results in various physiological effects, this complexity of mechanisms is a key hurdle in the interpretation, translation and adoption of innovations into main stream medical practice. The 3D animations will gain a key role in educational settings in order to facilitate the understanding of new mechanisms. As a result, 3D animations will become the key to providing a crystal clear and engaging view on how leading experts see the state of the art mechanisms which we ultimately integrate into our educational programs and materials.


3D animations are primarily developed as short clips to be integrated in PowerPoint presentations or other media formats, such as video, streaming - web based formats or print. The Alexander American University School of Medicine fosters the concept of integrative curriculum with 3D animations. 3D medical animations explain more in less time. Our animations deliver a rich experience of functional and dynamic mechanisms of human body.

Guyana is derived from an Indigenous Amerindian language and means "land of many waters". The Caribbean Community (CARICOM), of which Guyana is a member, is headquartered in Guyana's capital and largest city, Georgetown. English is the official language of Guyana and is used for education, government, media, and services. The main economic activities in Guyana are agriculture (production of rice and Demerara sugar), bauxite mining, gold mining, timber, shrimp fishing and minerals.
The present population of Guyana is racially and ethnically heterogeneous, with ethnic groups originating from India, Africa, Europe, and China, as well as indigenous or aboriginal peoples. Despite their diverse ethnic backgrounds, these groups share two common languages: English and Creole. Most Indo-Guyanese are descended from Bhojpuri-speaking Bihari and Uttar Pradesh migrants. Many Indo-Guyanese are also descended Tamil speaking Tamils from Tamil Nadu, and Telugus of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in South India.
