Importance of Adequate Gross Anatomy Education: The Impact of a Structured Pelvic Anatomy Course during Gynecology Fellowship
Heisler, Christine Aminda
Anatomical Sciences Education, v4 n5 p302-304 Sep-Oct 2011
Medical education underwent standardization at the turn of the 20th century and remained fairly consistent until recently. Incorporation of a patient-centered or case-based curriculum is believed to reinforce basic science concepts. One negative aspect is a reduction in hours spent with cadaveric dissection in the gross anatomy laboratory. For those entering a surgical career, limited anatomical exposure leaves knowledge deficits that must be corrected during further education during residency training. The benefit of providing formal anatomy education to residents and surgical fellows is described in the literature, specifically noting improvement in written test scores and surgical application.
