Edwards, Danielle N.; Meyer, Edgar R.; Brooks, William S.; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Medical education has reported a shortage of anatomy educators since the 1960s. While the faculty pipeline has recently been explored, insights into retirement intentions, a key driver of faculty turnover, have yet to be investigated. With the mean age of anatomists rising, knowledge of retirement intentions among current educators is essential to…

Wilson, Adam B.; Barger, J. Bradley; Perez, Patricia; Brooks, William S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Continuing education (CE) is an essential element in the life-long learning of health care providers and educators. Despite the importance of the anatomical sciences in the training and practice of clinicians, no studies have examined the need/state of anatomy-related CE nationally. This study assessed the current landscape of CE in the anatomical…

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…
