Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things. (Marcus Tullius Cicero)
Chase DiMarco is memory expert (mnemonist), medical education entrepreneur, MBA, and MD-PhD candidate. He specializes in helping medical and health sciences students succeed in learning and remembering large amounts of information in a short time. Which is what these students need, right?

A "memory palace" is a mnemonic device or technique in which a learner imagines a location such as a house or room and places concepts or terms to be remembered at specific locations within it. This helps a person remember a large group of things by remembering their location in the imagined location.
This technique is also called "method of loci"—and bunch of other synonyms that one would need a memory palace to remember.
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in contemporary instructional practice, this program helps you power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
Memory palaces are one of the tools in the toolbox that we can offer our A&P students. This one takes Practice. Practice. Practice. —but can really pay off in increased retention and retrieval!
