Niedermair, Julian F.; Antipova, Veronica; Manhal, Simone; Siwetz, Martin; Wimmer-Röll, Monika; Hammer, Niels; Fellner, Franz A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Technological approaches deploying three-dimensional visualization to integrate virtual anatomy are increasingly used to provide medical students with state-of-the-art teaching. It is unclear to date to which extent virtual anatomy may help replace the dissection course. Medical students of Johannes Kepler University attend both a dissection and a…

Darici, Dogus; Schneider, Agnes Yüeh-Dan; Missler, Markus; Pfleiderer, Bettina – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Sex and gender bias in anatomy learning materials are considered a "hidden obstacle" to gender equity in medical curricula. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether quantitative sex and gender biases do exist in popular anatomy e-learning platforms and compare the results with those found in contemporary textbooks and…

Messerer, David Alexander Christian; Behr, Jonathan Lukas; Kraft, Sophie Felice; Schön, Michael; Horneffer, Astrid; Kühl, Susanne Julia; Benedikt Seifert, Lukas; Huber-Lang, Markus; Böckers, Tobias Maria; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic required adjustments and limitations in university teaching, thereby challenging teaching concepts in anatomy requiring in-person contact, including the gross anatomy course. Therefore, the present study investigates the impact of COVID-19-associated adjustments on students' perception of the gross anatomy course's importance…

Hands-on courses utilizing preserved human tissues for educational training offer an important pathway to acquire basic anatomical knowledge. Owing to the reevaluation of formaldehyde limits by the European Commission, a joint approach was chosen by the German-speaking anatomies in Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) to find commonalities among…

Styn, Amelie; Scheiter, Katharina; Fischer, Martin R.; Shiozawa, Thomas; Behrmann, Felix; Steffan, Adrian; Kugelmann, Daniela; Berndt, Markus – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The way medical students learn anatomy is constantly evolving. Nowadays, technologies such as tablets support established learning methods like drawing. In this study, the effect of drawing on a tablet on medical students' anatomy learning was investigated compared to drawing or summarizing on paper. The quality of drawings or summaries was…

Gloy, Kilian; Weyhe, Paul; Nerenz, Eric; Kaluschke, Maximilian; Uslar, Verena; Zachmann, Gabriel; Weyhe, Dirk – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
In order to improve learning efficiency and memory retention in medical teaching, furthering active learning seems to be an effective alternative to classical teaching. One option to make active exploration of the subject matter possible is the use of virtual reality (VR) technology. The authors developed an immersive anatomy atlas which allows…

Binder, Johannes S.; Scholz, Michael; Ellmann, Stephan; Uder, Michael; Grützmann, Robert; Weber, Georg F.; Krautz, Christian – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Integration of medical imaging into preclinical anatomy courses is already underway in many medical schools. However, interpretation of two-dimensional grayscale images is difficult and conventional volume rendering techniques provide only images of limited quality. In this regard, a more photorealistic visualization provided by Cinematic…

Shiozawa, Thomas; Glauben, Markus; Banzhaf, Michael; Griewatz, Jan; Hirt, Bernhard; Zipfel, Stephan; Lammerding-Koeppel, Maria; Herrmann-Werner, Anne – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The professional behavior of future doctors is increasingly important in medical education. One of the first subjects in the curriculum to address this issue is gross anatomy. The Tuebingen Medical Faculty implemented a learning portfolio and a seminar on medical professionalism during the dissection course. The aims of this research project are…

Iaconisi, Julia; Hasselblatt, Friederike; Mayer, Benjamin; Schoen, Michael; Böckers, Tobias Maria; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
While most German anatomy institutes provide only limited information about body donors and their lives, students have expressed a desire to learn more about these individuals, especially about their motivations to donate their bodies for the sake of medical education. In order to gratify this wish, as well as to further humanize body donors, an…

Alvarez, Simone; Schultz, Jobst-Hendrik – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
There are many benefits to peer and near-peer tutoring. The current literature suggests that near-peer teaching within the domain of gross anatomy may lead to the development of numerous competencies for burgeoning medical professionals. The aim of this study was a quantitative and qualitative approach to explore which professional and personal…

Hasselblatt, Friederike; Messerer, David A. C.; Keis, Oliver; Böckers, Tobias M.; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Many Anglo-American universities have undertaken a paradigm shift in how the dissection of human material is approached, such that students are encouraged to learn about the lives of body donors, and to respectfully "personalize" them as human beings, rather than treating the specimens as anonymous cadavers. For the purposes of this…

Klima, Stefan; Hepp, Pierre; Löffler, Sabine; Cornwall, Jon; Hammer, Niels – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Integration of anatomy and clinical teaching is a theoretical ideal, yet there is a worldwide paucity of such amalgamation. These teaching models provide support for medical trainees, an important element in Germany where orthopedic intern numbers have declined and anecdotal evidence suggests disinterest in orthopedics. The aim of the study was to…

Shiozawa, Thomas; Butz, Benjamin; Herlan, Stephan; Kramer, Andreas; Hirt, Bernhard – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Tuebingen's "Sectio Chirurgica" (TSC) is an innovative, interactive, multimedia, and transdisciplinary teaching method designed to complement dissection courses. The Tuebingen's "Sectio Chirurgica" (TSC) allows clinical anatomy to be taught via interactive live stream surgeries moderated by an anatomist. This method aims to…

Bockers, Anja; Baader, Christoph; Fassnacht, Ulrich Kai; Ochsner, Wolfgang; Bockers, Tobias Maria – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
The practice of dissection teaches students not only the foundations of anatomical knowledge but also encourages the development of professional competencies. Yet, the dissection of cadavers in the gross anatomy course can be a stress factor for medical students. There are a minor proportion of students who demonstrate strong emotional reactions…

Steinke, Hanno; Saito, Toshiyuki; Herrmann, Gudrun; Miyaki, Takayoshi; Hammer, Niels; Sandrock, Mara; Itoh, Masahiro; Spanel-Borowski, Katharina – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2010
Gross dissection for demonstrating anatomy of the human pelvis has traditionally involved one of two approaches, each with advantages and disadvantages. Classic hemisection in the median plane through the pelvic ring transects the visceral organs but maintains two symmetric pelvic halves. An alternative paramedial transection compromises one side…
