O'Rourke, Joseph C.; Smyth, Lillian; Webb, Alexandra L.; Valter, Krisztina – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Teaching internal structures obscured from direct view is a major challenge of anatomy education. High-fidelity interactive three-dimensional (3D) micro-computed tomography (CT) models with virtual dissection present a possible solution. However, their utility for teaching complex internal structures of the human body is unclear. The purpose of…

Foytl, Jakub; Chisholm, Fraser; Varsou, Ourania – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The supplementation of lecture-based anatomy teaching with laboratory sessions, involving dissection or anatomical specimens, is commonly used. Hands-on dissection allows students to handle instruments correctly while actively exploring three-dimensional anatomy. However, dissection carries a potential risk of sharps and splash injuries. The aim…

Hulme, Anneliese K.; Luo, Kehui; Štrkalj, Goran – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Attrition of anatomy knowledge has been an area of concern in health professions curricula. To ensure safe and effective clinical practice, the study of chiropractic requires a good knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy. In this study, musculoskeletal limb knowledge retention was investigated among students in the 5-year chiropractic program at…

Robertson, Ellen M.; Thompson, Kenneth L.; Notebaert, Andrew J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Student struggles in gross anatomy coursework at the professional level can result in hours of remediation along with a need to allot time and other resources by both the student and the faculty. Since this course typically occurs in the first semester of the first year, programs can turn to admissions data to try to determine which of these…

Brewer-Deluce, Danielle; Sharma, Bhanu; Akhtar-Danesh, Noori; Jackson, Thomas; Wainman, Bruce C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Course evaluations can be used for curriculum improvement and have the potential to better the student learning experience. However, because most are based on Likert scales and open-ended feedback, understanding diversity in student opinion and uncovering optimal options for course change and improvement are often difficult. Alternatively,…

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…

Greene, Sarah J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Dissection videos are commonly utilized in gross anatomy courses; however, the actual usage of such videos, as well as the academic impact of student use of these videos, is largely unknown. Understanding how dissection videos impact learning is important in making curricular decisions. In this study, 22 dissection videos were created to review…

Weinkle, Laura J.; Stratford, Jennifer M.; Lee, Lisa M. J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Instructor evaluations are influenced by implicit age and gender bias, with lower ratings and negative feedback given to instructors believed to stray from stereotypical age and gender norms. Female instructors exhibiting typically male-associated qualities such as leadership and authority, are often negatively impacted. Implicit bias also…

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…
