Byram, Jessica N.; Lazarus, Michelle D.; Wilson, Adam B.; Brown, Kirsten M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Altmetrics are non-traditional metrics that can capture downloads, social media shares, and other modern measures of research impact and reach. Despite most of the altmetrics literature focusing on evaluating the relationship between research outputs and academic impact/influence, the perceived and actual value of altmetrics among academicians…

Lazarus, Michelle D.; Gouda-Vossos, Amany; Ziebell, Angela; Brand, Gabrielle – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Uncertainty tolerance, individuals' perceptions/responses to uncertain stimuli, is increasingly recognized as critical to effective healthcare practice. While the COVID-19 pandemic generated collective uncertainty, healthcare-related uncertainty is omnipresent. Correspondingly, there is increasing focus on uncertainty tolerance as a health…

Maloney, Stephen; Pather, Nalini; Foo, Jonathan; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Studies of "cost and value" in anatomical sciences education examine not only what works, but at what cost, thus evaluating the inputs and outputs of education. This research provides insights into how to use available resources (e.g., academic time, budgets, infrastructure) as a mechanism to obtaining the maximum outcomes available. The…

Pather, Nalini; Blyth, Phil; Chapman, Jamie A.; Dayal, Manisha R.; Flack, Natasha A.M.S.; Fogg, Quentin A.; Green, Rodney A.; Hulme, Anneliese K.; Johnson, Ian P.; Meyer, Amanda J.; Morley, John W.; Shortland, Peter J.; Štrkalj, Goran; Štrkalj, Mirjana; Valter, Krisztina; Webb, Alexandra L.; Woodley, Stephanie J.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Australian and New Zealand universities commenced a new academic year in February/March 2020 largely with "business as usual." The subsequent Covid-19 pandemic imposed unexpected disruptions to anatomical educational practice. Rapid change occurred due to government-imposed physical distancing regulations from March 2020 that…

Lufler, Rebecca S.; Lazarus, Michelle D.; Stefanik, Joshua J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
There is growing demand from accrediting agencies for improved basic science integration into fourth-year medical curricula and inculcation of medical students with teaching skills. The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a fourth-year medical school elective course focused on teaching gross anatomy on anatomical…

Wilson, Adam B.; Notebaert, Andrew J.; Schaefer, Audra F.; Moxham, Bernard J.; Stephens, Shiby; Mueller, Caroline; Lazarus, Michelle D.; Katrikh, Aaron Z.; Brooks, Williams S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
In 2002, a widely publicized report projected an anatomy educator shortage based on department chairpersons' perceptions. Now, 17 years later, the question lingers: "Does an anatomy educator shortage persist and, if so, how severe is the shortage?" Trends in the number, type, and fill rate of anatomy educator job openings were explored…

Stephens, Georgina C.; Rees, Charlotte E.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The contribution of donor dissection to modern anatomy pedagogy remains debated. While short-term anatomy knowledge gains from dissection are questionable, studies suggest that donor dissection may have other impacts on students including influencing medical students' professional development, though evidence for such is limited. To improve the…

Wilson, Adam B.; Brown, Kirsten M.; Misch, Jonathan; Miller, Corinne H.; Klein, Barbie A.; Taylor, Melissa A.; Goodwin, Michael; Boyle, Eve K.; Hoppe, Chantal; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
While prior meta-analyses in anatomy education have explored the effects of laboratory pedagogies and histology media on learner performance, the effects of student-centered learning (SCL) and computer-aided instruction (CAI) have not been broadly evaluated. This research sought to answer the question, "How effective are student-centered…

Marsland, Madeleine J.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Social media (SoMe) is increasingly used in higher education (HE) to access knowledge and enable global communication. The SoMe platform Twitter® is particularly beneficial in these contexts because it is readily accessible, easily searchable (via hashtags) and global. Given these advantages, the twitter platform @AskAnatomist was created to…

Rhodes, Danielle; Fogg, Quentin A.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Worldwide there is a growing reliance on sessional teachers in universities. This has impacted all disciplines in higher education including medical anatomy programs. The objective of this review was to define the role and support needs of sessional anatomy teachers by reporting on the (1) qualifications, (2) teaching role, (3) training, and (4)…

Lazarus, Michelle D.; Dos Santos, Jason A.; Haidet, Paul M.; Whitcomb, Tiffany L. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
The anatomy laboratory provides an ideal environment for the integration of clinical contexts as the willed-donor is often regarded as a student's "first patient." This study evaluated an innovative approach to peer teaching in the anatomy laboratory using a clinical handoff context. The authors introduced the "Situation,…

Lazarus, Michelle D.; Kauffman, Gordon L., Jr.; Kothari, Milind J.; Mosher, Timothy J.; Silvis, Matthew L.; Wawrzyniak, John R.; Anderson, Daniel T.; Black, Kevin P. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2014
Current undergraduate medical school curricular trends focus on both vertical integration of clinical knowledge into the traditionally basic science-dedicated curricula and increasing basic science education in the clinical years. This latter type of integration is more difficult and less reported on than the former. Here, we present an outline of…

Lazarus, Michelle D.; Chinchilli, Vernon M.; Leong, Shou Ling; Kauffman, Gordon L., Jr. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
The evolution in undergraduate medical school curricula has significantly impacted anatomy education. This study investigated the perceived role of clinical anatomy and evaluated perceptions of medical students' ability to apply anatomical knowledge in the clinic. The aim of this study was to develop a framework to enhance anatomical educational…
