Lunn-Collier, Robyn; Layman-Lemphane, Jodie I.; Baatjes, Karin J.; Correia, Janine – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Anatomical science is a fundamental element of undergraduate medical education; thus, it is imperative that the course serves future medical professionals when entering clinical practice. However, anatomical education has faced challenges in recent years including decreased allocated time, increased class sizes and over-stretched staff.…

De Gama, Brenda Z.; Jones, David Gareth; Bhengu, Thamsanqa T.; Satyapal, Kapil S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Cultural practices in the African continent have been thought to impact negatively on body donation. Thus, most African countries continue to rely on unclaimed bodies for dissection programs, or bequests from the white population. The latter situation is dominant in South African medical schools. Since South Africa is multi-cultural with nine main…

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…

Shead, Dorothy A.; Roos, Ronel; Olivier, Benita; Ihunwo, Amadi O. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Eight faculties in South Africa offer undergraduate physiotherapy training with gross anatomy included as a basis for clinical practice. Little information exists about anatomy education for this student body. A 42-question peer-reviewed survey was distributed to physiotherapy gross anatomy course coordinators in all the eight faculties. Seven…

Kotzé, Sanet Henriët; Mole, Calvin Gerald – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
At Stellenbosch University, South Africa, basic histology is taught to a combination class of almost 400 first-year medical, physiotherapy, and dietetic students. Many students often find the amount of work in basic histology lectures overwhelming and consequently loose interest. The aim was to determine if a draw-along mapping activity would…

Kotze, Sanet Henriet; Mole, Calvin Gerald – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2013
Many studies have reported on the perceptions of medical students toward dissection. It is important to understand the feelings and symptoms experienced during dissection so that they can be adequately handled. Prior to dissection, first year students are given lectures on aspects of dissection, death and dying, and death rituals in various…

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…

Kotze, Sanet Henriet; Mole, Calvin Gerald; Greyling, Linda Magdalena – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2012
It has been noted by staff at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University that medical students neglect the study of surface anatomy during dissection. This study reports on the novel use of Lodox[R] Statscan[R] images in anatomical education, particularly the teaching of surface anatomy. Full body digital X-ray images (Lodox Statscan)…

Gangata, Hope; Ntaba, Phatheka; Akol, Princess; Louw, Graham – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2010
The study of gross Anatomy through the use of cadaveric dissections in medical schools is an essential part of the comprehensive learning of human Anatomy, and unsurprisingly, 90% of the surveyed medical schools in Africa used cadaveric dissections. Donated cadavers now make up 80% of the total cadavers in North American medical schools and all…
