This paper presents an inquiry into Virtual Reality (VR) training environments and their application in early postgraduate anatomy teaching. There is great interest in the use of VR applications, but there has been little practical application in the UK. In this inquiry we set out to explore anatomy education and the potential role of VR in the postgraduate setting.
