Oliveira, Ana; Wainman, Bruce; Palombella, Andrew; Rockarts, Jasmine; Wojkowski, Sarah – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Interprofessional learning improves students' clinical and interprofessional competencies. COVID-19 prevented delivering in-person education and motivated the development of a virtual interprofessional cadaveric dissection (ICD) course. This study reports on the effects of a virtual ICD course compared to a previously delivered in-person course,…

Yang, Jack X.; DeYoung, Veronica; Xue, Yuanxin; Nehru, Amit; Hildebrand, Alexandra; Brewer-Deluce, Danielle; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Three-dimensional (3D) scanning and printing technology has allowed for the production of anatomical replicas at virtually any size. But what size optimizes the educational potential of 3D printing models? This study systematically investigates the effect of model size on nominal anatomy learning. The study population of 380 undergraduate…

Kip; Topping, Daniel B.; Wainman, Bruce; Wineski, Lawrence E.; Zumwalt, Ann C.; Hankin, Mark H. РAnatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Clerkships are defining experiences for medical students in which students integrate basic science knowledge with clinical information as they gain experience in diagnosing and treating patients in a variety of clinical settings. Among the basic sciences, there is broad agreement that anatomy is foundational for medical practice. Unfortunately,…

Mackinnon, Chelsea; Akhtar-Danesh, Noori; Palombella, Andrew; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Interprofessional education (IPE) prepares healthcare students for collaboration in their future careers. The purpose of this study was to determine which aspects of the IPE Program in Anatomy at McMaster University contributed to the development of healthcare student's interprofessional skills. Q-methodology was used to identify the students'…

Wainman, Bruce; Aggarwal, Akanksha; Birk, Sapriya K.; Gill, Jaskaran S.; Hass, Katrina S.; Fenesi, Barbara – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The novelty of three-dimensional visualization technology (3DVT), such as virtual reality (VR), has captured the interest of many educational institutions. This study's objectives were to (1) assess how VR and physical models impact anatomy learning, (2) determine the effect of visuospatial ability on anatomy learning from VR and physical models,…

Rockarts, Jasmine; Brewer-Deluce, Danielle; Shali, Ari; Mohialdin, Vian; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The anatomical sciences have always been regarded as an essential component of medical education. In Canada, the methodology and time dedicated to anatomy teaching are currently unknown. Two surveys were administered to course directors and discipline leaders to gain a comprehensive view of anatomical education in Canadian medical schools.…

Wainman, Bruce; Pukas, Giancarlo; Wolak, Liliana; Mohanraj, Sylvia; Lamb, Jason; Norman, Geoffrey R. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Anatomy education has been revolutionized through digital media, resulting in major advances in realism, portability, scalability, and user satisfaction. However, while such approaches may well be more portable, realistic, or satisfying than traditional photographic presentations, it is less clear that they have any superiority in terms of student…

Zheng, Yu Hang; Palombella, Andrew; Salfi, Jenn; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Several studies have shown significant improvements in the attitudes and perceptions of healthcare professional students toward interprofessional education (IPE) immediately following intervention with IPE courses. However, there remains little evidence on the lasting effects of IPE courses and the long-term influences of these IPE experiences are…

Fernandes, Alisha Rebecca; Palombella, Andrew; Salfi, Jenn; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
Healthcare delivery is reliant on a team-based approach, and interprofessional education (IPE) provides a means by which such collaboration skills can be fostered prior to entering the workplace. IPE within healthcare programs has been associated with improved collaborative behavior, patient care and satisfaction, reduced clinical error, and…

Khot, Zaid; Quinlan, Kaitlyn; Norman, Geoffrey R.; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2013
There is increasing use of computer-based resources to teach anatomy, although no study has compared computer-based learning to traditional. In this study, we examine the effectiveness of three formats of anatomy learning: (1) a virtual reality (VR) computer-based module, (2) a static computer-based module providing Key Views (KV), (3) a plastic…
