Calum Downie; Michael Burke – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
The purpose of this descriptive article was to illustrate the process of using constructive alignment in redesigning an introductory gross anatomy unit that is taught specifically to sports science and physical education students at Victoria University. The unit was redesigned as an intensive learning unit in 2017 as part of a broader…

Craig I. Johnson; Lucy E. Hyde; Thomas Cornwall; Michelle Spear – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
At the University of Bristol, we established a novel dissection course to complement our anatomy degree. Students enrolled in this undergraduate course are trained as comparative anatomists, with equal time given to both human and veterinary anatomy. Historically, students opted to dissect either human or veterinary donors as part of the course.…

Bobbie J. Leeper; Jeremy J. Grachan; Rhiannon Robinson; Julie Doll; Kelsey Stevens – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Dissection of human body donors is a common component of anatomy curricula, as it provides opportunities for tactile and intellectual engagement unmatched otherwise. Additionally, interaction with human body donors contributes to the "hidden curriculum" of allowing students to begin to ethically practice patient care with empathy,…

The reconstruction of two-dimensional (2D) slices to three-dimensional (3D) digital anatomical models requires technical skills and software that are becoming increasingly important to the modern anatomist, but these skills are rarely taught in undergraduate science classrooms. Furthermore, learning opportunities that allow students to…

Michelle D. Lazarus; Mandy Truong; Peter Douglas; Neil Selwyn – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Anatomy educators are often at the forefront of adopting innovative and advanced technologies for teaching, such as artificial intelligence (AI). While AI offers potential new opportunities for anatomical education, hard lessons learned from the deployment of AI tools in other domains (e.g., criminal justice, healthcare, and finance) suggest that…

Guerrero-Mendivil, Francisco Daniel; Elizondo-Omaña, Rodrigo Enrique; Jacobo-Baca, Guillermo; Quiroz-Perales, Xavier Gerardo; Salinas-Alvarez, Yolanda; Martinez-Garza, Javier Humberto; Fuente-Villarreal, David; Quiroga-Garza, Alejandro; Guzman-Lopez, Santos – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
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…

Hortsch, Michael – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The term "histology" was coined a little over 200 years ago and the subject has always relied on microscopy as its defining technology. Microscopy was and still is an essential approach for the description of cellular components and their arrangements in living organisms. For more than a century and a half, histology or microanatomy has…

Hortsch, Michael – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
With anatomical education becoming a global endeavor, free online resources offered via the Internet or other electronic venues are of increasing importance for teaching and learning communities worldwide. Students and instructors from developing countries, often limited in access to modern instructional resources by infrastructural and financial…

Jones, David Gareth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Concerns have recently been expressed about the continuing availability of human bones from India, obtained originally for educational purposes but lacking the requisite informed consent that would be expected today. More generally, a broader claim is being made, namely, that the practice of using any unconsented bones in educational settings is…

Oliveira, André de Sá Braga; Leonel, Luciano César P. C.; LaHood, Edward R.; Hallak, Hana; Link, Michael J.; Maleszewski, Joseph J.; Pinheiro-Neto, Carlos D.; Morris, Jonathan M.; Peris-Celda, Maria – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Hands-on dissections using cadaveric tissues for neuroanatomical education are not easily available in many educational institutions due to financial, safety, and ethical factors. Supplementary pedagogical tools, for instance, 3D models of anatomical specimens acquired with photogrammetry are an efficient alternative to democratize the 3D…

Krause, Kayla J.; Mullins, Drew D.; Kist, Madison N.; Goldman, Evan M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Virtual reality (VR) is an increasingly available resource with numerous applications to medical education, and as a teaching tool has been widely validated in the literature. Photogrammetry, the process of overlapping two-dimensional (2D) photographic images of three-dimensional (3D) objects to create a 3D image or "model," can be used…

Carroll, Melissa A.; McKenzie, Alison; Tracy-Bee, Mary – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
This viewpoint proposes eight anatomy threshold concepts related to physical therapist education, considering both movement system theory and anatomical competence. Movement system theory provides classifications and terminology that succinctly identifies and describes physical therapy practice from a theoretical and philosophical framework. The…

Dee, Edward Christopher; Alty, Isaac G.; Agolia, James P.; Torres-Quinones, Carlos; van Houten, Trudy; Stearns, Dana A.; Lillehei, Craig W.; Shamberger, Robert C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
As curricular emphasis on anatomy in undergraduate medical education continues to evolve, new approaches to anatomical education are urgently needed to prepare medical students for residency. A surgical anatomy class was designed for third- and fourth-year medical students to explore important anatomical relationships by performing realistic…

Balta, Joy Y.; Supple, Briony; O'Keeffe, Gerard W. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Over the past decades, teaching and learning within the discipline of anatomy has undergone significant changes. Some of these changes are due to a reduction in the number of teaching hours, while others are related to advancements in technology. Faced with these many choices for change, it can be difficult for faculty to decide on which new…

Cope, Janet M.; Bennett, Cynthia C.; Balilionis, Gytis; Person, Dianne M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
In 2017, Elon University became one of very few universities in the United States without a medical school to have an in-house Anatomical Gift Program (AGP). The program accepts first-person-consenting individuals only and within 2.5 years has become self-sufficient, supporting anatomy curricular needs of its physical therapy, physician assistant,…
