Thompson, Andrew R.; Marshall, Aaron M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The role of human dissection in modern medical curricula has been a topic of intense debate. In part, this is because dissection can be time-consuming and curricular hours are being monitored more carefully. This has led some to question the efficacy and importance of dissection as a teaching method. While this topic has received considerable…

Sotgiu, Maria Alessandra; Mazzarello, Vittorio; Bandiera, Pasquale; Madeddu, Roberto; Montella, Andrea; Moxham, Bernard – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Neuroanatomy has been deemed crucial for clinical neurosciences. It has been one of the most challenging parts of the anatomical curriculum and is one of the causes of "neurophobia," whose main implication is a negative influence on the choice of neurology in the near future. In the last decades, several educational strategies have been…

Langlois, Jean; Bellemare, Christian; Toulouse, Josée; Wells, George A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Spatial abilities have been correlated to anatomy knowledge assessment and spatial training has been found to improve spatial abilities in previous systematic reviews. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate spatial abilities training in anatomy education. A literature search was done from inception to 3 August 2017 in Scopus® and…

Cotofana, Sebastian; Lachman, Nirusha – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Hands-on dissection-based learning of anatomy offers an unique and valued experience for medical students. Too often however, the inexperienced student's focus is to avoid damage to unfamiliar structures instead of understanding spatial relationships between structures. This results in unfortunate surrender of a critical learning experience.…

Wilson, Adam B.; Notebaert, Andrew J.; Schaefer, Audra F.; Moxham, Bernard J.; Stephens, Shiby; Mueller, Caroline; Lazarus, Michelle D.; Katrikh, Aaron Z.; Brooks, Williams S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
In 2002, a widely publicized report projected an anatomy educator shortage based on department chairpersons' perceptions. Now, 17 years later, the question lingers: "Does an anatomy educator shortage persist and, if so, how severe is the shortage?" Trends in the number, type, and fill rate of anatomy educator job openings were explored…
