Cheng, Xin; Chan, Lap Ki; Pan, San-Qiang; Cai, Hongmei; Li, Yun-Qing; Yang, Xuesong – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic launched the use of online courses in Chinese medical schools during February 2020. To evaluate the state of gross anatomy education in China during the pandemic, a nationwide survey was conducted through convenience sampling by email or respondent invitations on social media. A total of 359 questionnaires were received from…

Cheng, Xin; Chan, Lap Ki; Li, He; Yang, Xuesong – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
In mainland China, histology and embryology (HE) are taught in one course as an essential component of medical curricula. The effectiveness of HE courses directly affects the quality of medical students. To determine the present situation and changes in HE teaching in Chinese medical schools, a nationwide survey was conducted among the HE…

Pan, San-Qiang; Chan, Lap Ki; Yan, Yu; Yang, Xuesong – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Medical education in mainland China has undergone massive expansion and reforms in the past decades. A nation-wide survey of the five-year clinical medicine programs aimed to examine the course hours, pedagogies, learning resources and teaching staff of anatomy both at present and over the past three decades (1990-1999, 2000-2009, and 2010-2018).…

Chan, Lap Ki; Yang, Jian; Irby, David M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
The one-minute preceptor (OMP) was originally developed in the ambulatory care setting as a time-efficient teaching technique for learner-centered clinical training. There are also possible advantages of using the OMP in the gross anatomy laboratory. However, in a previous study it was found that providing training to experienced gross anatomy…

Chan, Lap Ki; Sharma, Neel – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2014
The one-minute preceptor (OMP) is a time-efficient, learner-centered teaching method used in a busy ambulatory care setting. This project evaluated the effects of training experienced anatomy teachers in the use of the OMP in the gross anatomy laboratory on students' perceived learning. Second-year medical students from a five-year,…

Chiu, Hei Yeung; Ng, Kwok Sing; Ma, Sin Kwan; Chan, Chi Hung; Ng, Sheung Wah; Tipoe, George L.; Chan, Lap Ki – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
Body donation is important for medical education and academic research. However, it is relatively rare in Hong Kong when compared with many Western countries. Comprehensive research has been performed on the motivation for body donation in Western countries; however, there is still insufficient research on body donation in Hong Kong to provide…

Chan, Lap Ki – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
Many structures in the mediastinum have asymmetrical relationships. For example, the pulmonary artery is superior to the main bronchus on the left side but is anterior on the right side. The pulmonary trunk is not in the midline, but to the left of the midline, and bifurcates anterior to the left main bronchus. Students often find these…

Chan, Lap Ki; Wiseman, Jeffrey – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
The one-minute preceptor (OMP) is a time-efficient technique used for teaching in busy clinical settings. It consists of five microskills: (1) get a commitment from the student, (2) probe for supporting evidence, (3) reinforce what was done right, (4) correct errors and fill in omissions, and (5) teach a general rule. It can also be used to…

Chan, Lap Ki; Cheng, Maurice M. W. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
Although high-fidelity digital models of human anatomy based on actual cross-sectional images of the human body have been developed, reports on the use of physical models in anatomy teaching continue to appear. This article aims to examine the common features shared by these physical models and analyze their educational value based on the…

Chan, Lap Ki – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2010
A lecture is not necessarily a monologue, promoting only passive learning. If appropriate techniques are used, a lecture can stimulate active learning too. One such method is demonstration, which can engage learners' attention and increase the interaction between the lecturer and the learners. This article describes two simple and useful tools for…

Chan, Lap Ki; Ganguly, Pallab K. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2008
Although there are a number of medical schools in the Caribbean islands, very few reports have come out so far in the literature regarding the efficacy of small-group teaching in them. The introduction of small-group teaching in the gross anatomy laboratory one and a half years ago at St. Matthew's University (SMU) on Grand Cayman appears to have…
