Khalil, Mohammed K.; Williams, Shanna E.; Hawkins, H. Gregory – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Much of the content delivered during medical students' preclinical years is assessed nationally by such testing as the United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) Step 1 and Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination® (COMPLEX-USA®) Step 1. Improvement of student study/learning strategies skills is associated with academic…

Brooks, William S.; Woodley, Kristina T. C. Panizzi; Jackson, James R.; Hoesley, Craig J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
The University of Alabama School of Medicine (UASOM) instituted a fully integrated, organ system-based preclinical curriculum in 2007. Gross anatomy and embryology were integrated with other basic science disciplines throughout the first two years of undergraduate medical education. Here we describe the methods of instruction and integration of…

Cuddy, Monica M.; Swanson, David B.; Drake, Richard L.; Pawlina, Wojciech – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2013
Anatomy instruction has evolved over the past two decades as many medical schools have undergone various types of curricular reform. To provide empirical evidence about whether or not curricular changes impact the acquisition and retention of anatomy knowledge, this study investigated the effect of variation in gross anatomy course hours,…
