Lilian H. Fellner; Svetlana M. King; Christine M. Barry – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Pelvic anatomy is considered challenging to teach and learn, partly because its complexity can make it difficult to conceptualize. Educational researchers recognize the value of a spiraling curriculum to develop clinically orientated anatomy knowledge for health professionals, but most studies have focused on the preclinical years. It is unclear…

Dissabandara, Lakal O.; Nawaratna, Sujeevi; Nirthanan, Selvanayagam – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The objective structured practical examination (OSPE) is a reliable assessment of practical skills in anatomy teaching. It is often administered as low-stake assessments to track progress at multiple time points in anatomy curricula. Standard-setting OSPEs to derive a pass mark and to ensure assessment quality and rigor is a complex task. This…

Hayes, Jennifer A.; Temple-Smith, Meredith J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy has often been regarded as an immutable discipline where everything that needs to be known is known. This article focuses on the teaching of vulval anatomy, the diversification of gender in contemporary society, and the increasing popularity of the Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS) industry. The binary language and singular structural…

Jenkin, Rebekah A.; Garrett, Samuel A.; Keay, Kevin A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Health education, research, and training rely on the altruistic act of body donation for the supply of cadavers. Organ transplantation and research rely on donated organs. Supply of both is limited, with further restrictions in Australia due to requirements for a next-of-kin agreement to donation, irrespective of the deceased's pre-death consent.…

Giuriato, Rosemary; Štrkalj, Goran; Prvan, Tania; Hulme, Anneliese; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Anatomy is a key knowledge area in chiropractic and is formally offered in the undergraduate component of chiropractic education. There is the potential for loss of anatomy knowledge before the opportunity to apply it in a clinical setting. This study aimed to determine whether chiropractic clinicians retain a level of anatomy knowledge comparable…

Hutchinson, Erin F.; Kramer, Beverley; Billings, Brendon K.; Brits, Desiré M.; Pather, Nalini – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Historically, legislature has been utilized to facilitate appropriate use of cadavers in the anatomical sciences. However, cadaver acquisition and use have also been guided by ethically appropriate and morally acceptable principles. Various global and regional frameworks of "ethical practice" guide body donation, including the use of…

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…
