June 13, 2014, MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The Navy launched a new innovative app June 13 entitled “Anatomy Study Guide App – America’s Navy.” This new, first-of-its-kind app is now available for free in the App Store and Google Play Store.
Created by the Navy’s advertising agency, Lowe Campbell Ewald, the app will serve as a relevant tool to help students with their studies and remind them that the U.S. Navy supports their goals, and offers opportunities that can help pay for school. The app is the first-of-its-kind for the military and is offered in the App Store and the Google Play Store at no cost.
The app will help bring the U.S. Navy to the forefront of potential medical career paths, and will be a handy reference for those who are currently enrolled in programs of study, those already practicing in the medical or healthcare fields, and individuals who may consider serving in this line of work.
“The app is an incredible tool,” said Cmdr. Bradley Kluegel, director of the Navy’s medical programs division for Navy Recruiting Command. “This tool will be immediately beneficial in practice for both future healthcare professionals and current practitioners. Additionally, it will be a tremendous asset for our team of medical program recruiters as they discuss Navy opportunities with future Navy physicians and other healthcare professionals.”
The app features 3-D functionality that allows for an enhanced learning experience of the human anatomy, including interactive diagrams of the muscular system, vascular system, heart, skeletal system, skull, brain and more. It incorporates testing, note-taking and sharing functionalities, as well as pre-loaded U.S. Navy healthcare content and relevant links to more information through digital and social properties.
