The COVID-19 pandemic required adjustments and limitations in university teaching, thereby challenging teaching concepts in anatomy requiring in-person contact, including the gross anatomy course. Therefore, the present study investigates the impact of COVID-19-associated adjustments on students' perception of the gross anatomy course's importance…

Messerer, David A. C.; Kraft, Sophie F.; Horneffer, Astrid; Messerer, Laura A. S.; Böckers, Tobias M.; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Peer-teaching is widely established in anatomy teaching and offers well-described advantages. Nevertheless, at Ulm University, Germany, a reduction in the number of peer teacher applicants for the dissection course was observed. This study examined factors related to the attractiveness of a position as a peer teacher for Generation Z students.…

Golenhofen, Nikola; Heindl, Felix; Grab-Kroll, Claudia; Messerer, David A. C.; Böckers, Tobias M.; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Hand-held devices have revolutionized communication and education in the last decade. Consequently, mobile learning (m-learning) has become popular among medical students. Nevertheless, there are relatively few studies assessing students' learning outcomes using m-learning devices. This observational study presents an anatomy m-learning tool…

Iaconisi, Julia; Hasselblatt, Friederike; Mayer, Benjamin; Schoen, Michael; Böckers, Tobias Maria; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
While most German anatomy institutes provide only limited information about body donors and their lives, students have expressed a desire to learn more about these individuals, especially about their motivations to donate their bodies for the sake of medical education. In order to gratify this wish, as well as to further humanize body donors, an…

Hasselblatt, Friederike; Messerer, David A. C.; Keis, Oliver; Böckers, Tobias M.; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Many Anglo-American universities have undertaken a paradigm shift in how the dissection of human material is approached, such that students are encouraged to learn about the lives of body donors, and to respectfully "personalize" them as human beings, rather than treating the specimens as anonymous cadavers. For the purposes of this…

Böckers, Anja; Mayer, Christian; Böckers, Tobias Maria – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2014
The preclinical compulsory elective course "Ready for the Operating Room (OR)!?" [in German]: "Fit für den OP (FOP)"] was implemented for students in their second year, who were simultaneously enrolled in the gross anatomy course. The objective of the study was to determine whether the direct practical application of anatomical…
