Binder, Johannes S.; Scholz, Michael; Ellmann, Stephan; Uder, Michael; Grützmann, Robert; Weber, Georg F.; Krautz, Christian – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Integration of medical imaging into preclinical anatomy courses is already underway in many medical schools. However, interpretation of two-dimensional grayscale images is difficult and conventional volume rendering techniques provide only images of limited quality. In this regard, a more photorealistic visualization provided by Cinematic…

Balta, Joy Y.; Supple, Briony; O'Keeffe, Gerard W. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Over the past decades, teaching and learning within the discipline of anatomy has undergone significant changes. Some of these changes are due to a reduction in the number of teaching hours, while others are related to advancements in technology. Faced with these many choices for change, it can be difficult for faculty to decide on which new…

Cope, Janet M.; Bennett, Cynthia C.; Balilionis, Gytis; Person, Dianne M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
In 2017, Elon University became one of very few universities in the United States without a medical school to have an in-house Anatomical Gift Program (AGP). The program accepts first-person-consenting individuals only and within 2.5 years has become self-sufficient, supporting anatomy curricular needs of its physical therapy, physician assistant,…

Savoldi, Fabio; Yeung, Andy W. K.; Tanaka, Ray; Mohammad Zadeh, Lisa S.; Montalvao, Carla; Bornstein, Michael M.; Tsoi, James K. H. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Learning bone anatomy of the skull is a complex topic involving three-dimensional information. The impact of the use of human dry skulls and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging was investigated in the teaching of undergraduate dental students. Sixty-four first-year students in the University of Hong Kong were randomly divided into eight…

Holland, Jane C.; Ní Dhónaill, Róisín; Clarke, Maeve; Joyce, Pauline – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The role of physician assistant/associate (PA) has expanded from its inception in the United States over 50 years ago, to European countries including Ireland. While there is an increasing body of evidence exploring the role and training of PAs in clinical settings, there is a scarcity of research exploring PA students' perspectives in relation to…

Merati, Nickoo; Murphy-Buske, Anna; Alfaro, Patricia; Larouche, Sandie S.; Noël, Geoffroy P. J. C.; Ventura, Nicole M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Interprofessional attitudes existing between healthcare disciplines can negatively impact communication and collaboration in the clinical setting. While human anatomy is a topic central to healthcare trainees, the potential of the anatomy laboratory to minimize negative interprofessional attitudes has yet to be characterized. This study aimed to…

Cheng, Xin; Chan, Lap Ki; Pan, San-Qiang; Cai, Hongmei; Li, Yun-Qing; Yang, Xuesong – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic launched the use of online courses in Chinese medical schools during February 2020. To evaluate the state of gross anatomy education in China during the pandemic, a nationwide survey was conducted through convenience sampling by email or respondent invitations on social media. A total of 359 questionnaires were received from…

McDonald, Aaron C.; Green, Rodney A.; Zacharias, Anita; Whitburn, Laura Y.; Hughes, Diane L.; Colasante, Meg; McGowan, Heath – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Anatomy practical classes have traditionally been taught by a team of demonstrators (team-taught) in a large dissection room. More recently, particularly in nonmedical contexts, practical classes have been taught by one teacher (sole-taught) to smaller student groups. The aim of this study was to compare student outcomes when the same course was…

Stephens, Georgina C.; Rees, Charlotte E.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2021
Tolerance of uncertainty, a construct describing individuals' responses to perceived uncertainty, has relevancy across healthcare systems, yet little work explores the impact of education on medical students' tolerance of uncertainty. While debate remains as to whether tolerance of uncertainty is changeable or static, the prevailing conceptual…

Rosario, Martín G. – Journal of Learning and Teaching in Digital Age, 2021
Conventional teaching methods, such as 2-dimensional PowerPoint presentations, are among the most common anatomy teaching tools. However, these methods do not allow depth perception of anatomical structures. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to report the incorporation and student's perception of a 3D anatomy app to an Occupational Therapy…

Moro, Christian; Phelps, Charlotte; Redmond, Petrea; Stromberga, Zane – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Due to increasing demands in the amount of content to be learned within a medical and health sciences curriculum, there are benefits towards exploring options for new and effective delivery modes. Augmented reality technology has the potential to enhance learning in physiology and anatomy, where students require a three-dimensional knowledge of…

Mecham, John A. – American Biology Teacher, 2021
Human rights issues can be topics of conflict, resistance, and indifference; thus, these issues are seldom broached in traditional college STEM courses. In this article, I share process, content, and sources used to introduce college students to the biology of the singularity of race and the biology of sexual identity. One or two class meetings on…
