Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy is a series of anatomy lessons on video presented by Robert D. Acland.[1] Dr. Acland was a professor of surgery in the division of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. The Atlas was originally released as a series of VHS tapes, published individually between 1995 and 2003.[2] The series was re-released in 2003 on DVD as Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy.

The series uses unembalmed human specimens to illustrate anatomical structures.[3] Intended for use by medical, dental and medical science students, the video teaching aid uses simple language and high quality images.

The authors claim: "Each minute of the finished product took twelve hours to produce: five in creating the script, five in making the shots, and two in post-production."[2]
