A multidisciplinary team of university teachers, in collaboration with veterinary clinicians working in private institutions, are developing a series of interactive CDs to support teaching in Anatomy of Exotic Animals. The aim is to provide students a material which fosters the applied sense of Anatomy, its close relationship with the Clinic, and the cross-learning as a key element in the new era which is starting for Spanish and European University. Our objective is to give a clinical orientation to the Anatomy and facilitate professional practice by presenting clinical cases to ensure a real picture, both of the major diseases that have these animals, and its resolution.

The work will be presented in a dual version Spanish-English, useful for both students and professionals. Appearing in two of the most spoken languages today, we ensure their potential spread anywhere in the world.
