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…

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…

Griffith, MacKenzie; Ferrigno, Christopher; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy-related departments have access to comparative research productivity data (e.g., Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research), yet no datasets exist for comparing departments' general practices pertinent to education-focused faculty. Practice trends in anatomy-related departments across U.S. medical schools were explored by surveying…

Wilson, Adam B.; Kaza, Niroop; Singpurwalla, Darius J.; Brooks, William S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Faculty qualified to teach in the anatomical sciences are growing scarce just as the need for trained anatomists is greater than ever. Enrollments are surging in anticipation of a large physician shortfall; meanwhile, many anatomists are reaching retirement age. Who will fill the teaching gap? This study assessed trends in doctorates awarded in…

Roach, Victoria A.; Mi, Misa; Mussell, Jason; Van Nuland, Sonya E.; Lufler, Rebecca S.; DeVeau, Kathryn M.; Dunham, Stacey M.; Husmann, Polly; Herriott, Hannah L.; Edwards, Danielle N.; Doubleday, Alison F.; Wilson, Brittany M.; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Interest in spatial ability has grown over the past few decades following the emergence of correlational evidence associating spatial aptitude with educational performance in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The research field at large and the anatomy education literature on this topic are mixed. In an attempt to…

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…

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…

Schaefer, Audra F.; Wilson, Adam B.; Barger, J. Bradley; Azim, Homaira M.; Brokaw, James J.; Brooks, William S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Anatomical sciences are foundational to the health professions, yet little is known about the qualifications of anatomy educators at the graduate and professional level in the United States. Moreover, there is concern that the number of qualified anatomy educators being trained may be insufficient to meet the growing demand posed by new and…

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…

Byram, Jessica N.; Seifert, Mark F.; Brooks, William S.; Fraser-Cotlin, Laura; Thorp, Laura E.; Williams, James M.; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
With integrated curricula and multidisciplinary assessments becoming more prevalent in medical education, there is a continued need for educational research to explore the advantages, consequences, and challenges of integration practices. This retrospective analysis investigated the number of items needed to reliably assess anatomical knowledge in…

Traser, Courtney J.; Hoffman, Leslie A.; Seifert, Mark F.; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
The use of quick response (QR) codes within undergraduate university courses is on the rise, yet literature concerning their use in medical education is scant. This study examined student perceptions on the usefulness of QR codes as learning aids in a medical gross anatomy course, statistically analyzed whether this learning aid impacted student…
