The Loan Slide Collection

Each first-year medical student (MS-I) at USUHS, as well as any graduate student taking the appropriate sections of the Integrated Anatomy and Physiology Curriculum, is issued a compound microscope and a boxed set of microscopy loan slides. The following table lists each of the nearly 100 slides in the set and links to a "folder" containing one or more images of the slide. Each folder contains (at least) one very low magnification image of the corresponding slide as well as some text information about it. Scroll down to the bottom of the table for a link to an information file about how the images were prepared and what they are intended to provide.
