Rocky Chun Chung Cheung; Jian Yang; Christian Fang; Man Fai Leung; Susan M. Bridges; George L. Tipoe – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Difficulty in visualizing anatomical structures has been identified as a challenge in anatomy learning and the emergence of three-dimensional printed models (3DPMs) offers a potential solution. This study evaluated the effectiveness of 3DPMs for learning the arterial supply of the head and neck region. One hundred eighty-four undergraduate medical…

Sai Gayathri Metla; Noori Akhtar-Danesh; Jessica Saini; Ilana Bayer; Yasmeen Mezil; Danielle Brewer-Deluce; Bruce C. Wainman – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, anatomy education was forced to adopt online modes of delivery. Previous research on student views revealed areas of strong preference (asynchronous lectures) and strong dislike (virtual specimens) in online anatomy courses. The current study seeks to compare the views of a single cohort of students…

Friel, Karen J.; Shultz, S. Tyler – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy serves as a foundational course in physical therapy education, but, due to its early placement in the curriculum, may have limited clinical application at that point of a student's education. Thus, augmenting a standard dissection course with surgical procedures can enhance the clinical relevance and knowledge of the anatomical structures…

Bond, Alistair P.; Kelsey, Alethea; Aitken, Gill – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruption to anatomical teaching worldwide with both lectures and practicals being moved online. Throughout this period anatomists were able to find new and innovative ways to teach and to aid student learning via a variety of delivery modes. This study aimed to interview anatomists who were involved in teaching…

Tripodi, Nicholas; Kelly, Kate; Husaric, Maja; Wospil, Rebecca; Fleischmann, Michael; Johnston, Susan; Harkin, Katherine – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Student engagement is known to have several positive effects on learning outcomes and can impact a student's university experience. High levels of engagement in content-heavy subjects can be difficult to attain. Due to a major institutional restructure, the anatomy prosection laboratory time per subject was dramatically reduced. In response, the…

Mogali, Sreenivasulu Reddy; Rotgans, Jerome I.; Rosby, Lucy; Ferenczi, Michael Alan; Low Beer, Naomi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Anatomical knowledge is commonly assessed by practical examinations that are often administered in summative format. The format of anatomy practical examination was changed at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore from summative (graded; must pass) to formative (ungraded; no pass/fail) in academic year (AY) 2017-2018. Both assessment…

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…

Hall, Emma R.; Davis, Rachel C.; Weller, Renate; Powney, Sonya; Williams, Sarah B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2013
Areas of difficulty faced by our veterinary medicine students, with respect to their learning in dissection classes, were identified. These challenges were both general adult-learning related and specific to the discipline of anatomy. Our aim was to design, implement, and evaluate a modified reciprocal peer-assisted/team-based learning…

Pampush, James D.; Petto, Andrew J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2011
Commonly used technical anatomy and physiology (A&P) terms are predominantly rooted in Latin and Greek vocabulary, so it is commonly inferred that a solid grounding in Latin and Greek roots of medical terminology will improve student learning in anatomy and related disciplines. This study examines the association of etymological knowledge of…
