Time, Willie Solomona; Samalia, Latika; Wibowo, Erik – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The Department of Anatomy at the University of Otago offers anatomical sciences education for various programs, but currently, little information is available on how the academic performance of anatomy students differ based on ethnicities. Here, we aim to determine if there is an ethnic disparity in academic performance among anatomy students at…

Crosado, Brynley; Löffler, Sabine; Ondruschka, Benjamin; Zhang, Ming; Zwirner, Johann; Hammer, Niels – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Embalming fixatives such as formaldehyde and phenol have been associated with occupational health hazards. While anatomists aim at replacing these chemicals, this seems presently unfeasible in particular for formaldehyde. Furthermore, fixation protocols usually require well-equipped facilities with highly experienced staff to achieve good fixation…

Pather, Nalini; Blyth, Phil; Chapman, Jamie A.; Dayal, Manisha R.; Flack, Natasha A.M.S.; Fogg, Quentin A.; Green, Rodney A.; Hulme, Anneliese K.; Johnson, Ian P.; Meyer, Amanda J.; Morley, John W.; Shortland, Peter J.; Štrkalj, Goran; Štrkalj, Mirjana; Valter, Krisztina; Webb, Alexandra L.; Woodley, Stephanie J.; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Australian and New Zealand universities commenced a new academic year in February/March 2020 largely with "business as usual." The subsequent Covid-19 pandemic imposed unexpected disruptions to anatomical educational practice. Rapid change occurred due to government-imposed physical distancing regulations from March 2020 that…

Eppler, Elisabeth; Serowy, Steffen; Link, Karl; Filgueira, Luis – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Profound anatomical knowledge is the basis for modern demands in medicine and surgery, but many countries worldwide including Australia and New Zealand have discontinued offering dissection courses to medical and dental students during the past decades. This educational project done in Australia aimed at enhancing basic and advanced anatomy…

Cornwall, Jon; Poppelwell, Zoe; McManus, Ruth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Individuals who register as body donors do so for various reasons, with aiding medical science a common motivation. Despite awareness of several key reasons for donation, there are few in-depth explorations of these motivations to contextualize persons' reasons for donating. This study undertakes a mixed-method exploration of motivations for body…

Flack, Natasha A. M. S.; Nicholson, Helen D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Dissection has long been the accepted method for teaching anatomy to medical students. More recently, some educators have suggested that easier, cheaper, alternative methods are just as effective. But what do the students think? This paper aimed to identify what undergraduate medical students learn, how they cope, and what effects participating in…

Bouwer, Hope Ellen; Valter, Krisztina; Webb, Alexandra Louise – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2016
The reduced use of dissection associated with the introduction of integrated systems problem-based learning curricula, graduate-entry programs and medical school expansion is a frequent topic of discussion and debate in modern medical training. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of these changes to the medical education…

Cornwall, Jon; Perry, Gary F.; Louw, Graham; Stringer, Mark D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
The altruistic act of body donation provides a precious resource for both teaching and researching human anatomy. However, relatively little is known about individuals who donate their bodies to science (donors), and in particular whether donors in different geographical locations share similar characteristics. A multicenter prospective survey of…

Cornwall, Jon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
Anatomical education has traditionally used cadaveric material to study the human body, with both wet prosections and plastinated (PP) material commonly utilized. However, the frequency of use of these different preparation modes in a tertiary institution has not been previously examined. An audit of PP use in the Department of Anatomy and…

Cornwall, Jon; Stringer, Mark D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2009
The debate surrounding the use of cadavers in teaching anatomy has focused almost exclusively on the pedagogic role of cadaver dissection in medical education. The aim of this study was to explore the wider aspects of a body bequest program for teaching and research into gross anatomy in a University setting. A retrospective audit was undertaken…
