Abstract

Our project involved improving student understanding of hearing mechanics and providing UniversitätsSpital Zürich with recommendations on how to develop more effective teaching models. Through research, we found the importance of having an interactive model within ENT lectures and a physics reference sheet to increase student understanding of otology. We utilized the software Amira, Geomagic, and Solidworks to isolate the ossicles from Micro-CT scans to 3D print our model. Our team created a model to benefit student understanding of otology.
