Andrew S. Cale; Leslie A. Hoffman; Margaret A. McNulty – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Due to the rigor and pace of undergraduate medical anatomy courses, it is not uncommon for students to struggle and fail initially. However, repetition of coursework places an additional burden on the student, instructor, and institution. The purpose of this study was to compare the exam preparation strategies of repeating and non-repeating…

Taylor, Melissa A.; Loder, Danielle M.; Herr, Michael J.; Nichols, Richard A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Many medical schools have undergone curricular reform recently. With these reforms, time spent teaching anatomy has been reduced, and there has been a general shift to a pass/fail grading system. At Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), a new curriculum was implemented in fall 2016. The year-long human gross anatomy course taught in 2015…

Brokaw, James J.; Byram, Jessica N.; Traser, Courtney J.; Arbor, Tafline C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
Anatomy faculties are integral to basic science instruction in medical schools, particularly given the preponderance of anatomic instruction in the preclinical curriculum. Recent years have witnessed major curricular restructuring and other emerging national trends that pose significant challenges to anatomists. An examination of anatomy faculty…

Brokaw, James J.; O'Loughlin, Valerie D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
In 2008, the Indiana University School of Medicine, in collaboration with the School of Education, admitted its first student to a newly approved PhD program in Anatomy and Cell Biology focusing on educational research rather than biomedical research. The goal of the program is twofold: (1) to provide students with extensive training in all of the…

Husmann, Polly R.; O'Loughlin, Valerie Dean; Braun, Mark W. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2009
This study compares overall laboratory averages and individual test scores along with a student survey to determine the effects of using virtual microscopy in place of optical microscopes in a large undergraduate human anatomy course. T-tests revealed that the first two laboratory examinations (of four) and the overall laboratory averages were…

Braun, Mark W.; Kearns, Katherine D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2008
The implementation of virtual microscopy in the teaching of pathology at the Bloomington, Indiana extension of the Indiana University School of Medicine permitted the assessment of student attitudes, use and academic performance with respect to this new technology. A gradual and integrated approach allowed the parallel assessment with respect to…
