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…

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…

Smyth, Lillian; Carter, James; Valter, Krisztina; Webb, Alexandra L. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
A student's own body provides an often disregarded site of knowledge production and corporeal wisdom. Learning via cognitive processes anchored in physical movement and body awareness, known as embodied learning, may aid students to visualize structures and understand their functions and clinical relevance. Working from an embodied learning…

Santos, Raquel Sofia; Carvalho, Ana Cristina; Tsisar, Stanislav; Bastos, Ana Raquel; Ferreira, Diogo; Ferreira, Maria Amélia; Povo, Ana; Guimarães, Bruno – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Anatomy is an essential subject of the medical curriculum. Despite its relevance, the curricular time and logistical resources devoted to teaching anatomy are in decline, favoring the introduction of new pedagogical approaches based on computer-assisted learning (CAL). This new pedagogical approach provides an insight into students' learning…

Duncan-Vaidya, Elizabeth A.; Stevenson, Erica L. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Despite an increase in the use of technology in undergraduate anatomy education, and the rising popularity of online anatomy courses at community colleges in the United States, there have been no reports on the efficacy of augmented reality on anatomy education in this population. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that augmented…

McDaniel, Katherine G.; Brown, Taylor; Radford, Caitlin C.; McDermott, Cynthia H.; Houten, Trudy; Katz, Martha E.; Stearns, Dana A.; Hildebrandt, Sabine – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Anatomy education provides students with opportunities to learn structure and function of the human body, to acquire professional competencies such as teamwork, interpersonal skills, self-awareness, and to reflect on and practice medical ethics. The fulfillment of this wide potential can present challenges in courses that are part of an integrated…
