Near-peer teaching has been widely implemented in medical schools and the benefits for the near-peer teachers (NPTs), the students, and the institution have been well documented. However, NPT training methods and perceptions of such have been limited. A four-year clinical anatomy and surgical training program was established (est. 2019) as part of…

Muñoz-Leija, Milton Alberto; Barrera, Francisco J.; Zárate-Garza, Pablo Patricio; Quiroga-Garza, Alejandro; Martínez-Garza, Javier Humberto; de la Fuente-Villarreal, David; Guzmán-López, Santos; Elizondo-Omaña, Rodrigo Enrique – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Scientific research and student involvement are critical to the formation of physicians, yet the number of medical researchers has decreased over time. To implement corrective strategies, the variables associated with positive research attitudes and productivity among medical students must be identified. The aim of this study was to evaluate the…

Salinas-Alvarez, Yolanda; Quiroga-Garza, Alejandro; Martinez-Garza, Javier Humberto; Jacobo-Baca, Guillermo; Zarate-Garza, Pablo Patricio; Rodríguez-Alanís, Karla Valeria; Guzman-Lopez, Santos; Elizondo-Omaña, Rodrigo Enrique – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Anatomical sciences curricula have been under constant reform over the years, with many countries having to reduce course hours while trying to preserve laboratory time. In Mexico, schools have historically been autonomous and unregulated, and data regarding structure and methods are still lacking. A national survey was sent by the Mexican Society…

Most anatomists agree that cadaver dissection serves as a superior teaching tool in human anatomy education. However, attitudes toward body donation vary widely between different individuals. A questionnaire was developed to determine the attitudes toward body and organ donation among those who learn the most from cadavers: medical students,…

Near-peer teaching (NPT) is a strategy in which senior students assume the instructor role with junior peers (mentees). Senior students develop unique skills and knowledge through NPT, an experience which extends their learning beyond content mastery. Different teaching modules featuring NPT were utilized in the human anatomy course at the School…

Elizondo-Omana, Rodrigo Enrique; Garcia-Rodriguez, Maria de los Angeles; Hinojosa-Amaya, Jose Miguel; Villarreal-Silva, Eliud Enrique; Avilan, Rosa Ivette Guzman; Cruz, Juan Jose Bazaldua; Guzman-Lopez, Santos – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2010
Few studies have evaluated resilience in an academic environment as it relates to academic success or failure. This work sought to assess resilience in regular and remedial students of gross anatomy during the first and second semesters of medical school and to correlate this personal trait with academic performance. Two groups of students were…
