Eryn K. Milian; Bryon A. Smith; Alejandro Costas; Marlon L. Wong; Daniel Ravelo; Gregory W. Hartley – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Physical therapy education has significantly evolved over the past few decades. While gross anatomy is integral to physical therapy education curricula, the current state of anatomy education within these programs is not well understood. The primary purpose of this report was to provide an update on the current state of anatomy education across…

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.…

Lauren K. Bagian; Taylor B. Wyatt; Claudia F. Mosley; Joy Y. Balta – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Dissection of human body donors is a valuable part of anatomical education, research, and clinical training. In the United States, deceased human bodies are predominantly sourced through whole-body donation programs (BDPs) housed by academic institutions. Due to the lack of information regarding BDPs, the aim of this study was to gather…

Historically, both donated bodies and unclaimed bodies have been the sources of human bodies for anatomy dissection globally with the latter discouraged for ethical reasons. Ghana lacks well-established body-donation programs, thus relying heavily on unclaimed bodies. Medical doctors benefit foremost from human bodies in their training and…

Alexandra Claveria; Dona Bachour; Joy Y. Balta; Rosetta Antonacci; Nicole M. Ventura; Geoffroy P. J. C. Noel – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Donor-centered education offers students the opportunity to not only acquire visual and tactile experiences for applying anatomical knowledge but also a chance for students to reflect upon fundamental humanistic principles. The exploration of differences in students' viewpoints on body donation and the utilization of body donors in their education…

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,…

Kyle A. Robertson; Jason M. Organ; Michael Yard; Jessica N. Byram – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
The peer-reviewed anatomical education literature thoroughly describes the benefits and drawbacks of donor dissection. Gross anatomy laboratory environments utilizing donor dissection are generally considered to be a premier environment where students foster non-traditional discipline-independent skills (NTDIS), including the acquisition of…

William Brown; Sam Afshari; Megan Zhou; Jacob Lythgoe; Ryan Walsh; Abigail C. Hielscher – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Basic competency in radiological imaging is essential for physicians to identify and manage diseases. An optimal place in which to include imaging in the medical curriculum is during anatomy as students can correlate the 3D anatomy from their body donors with the 2D cross-sectional anatomy. The goal of this project was to enhance first-year…

Joyce El-Haddad; Nalini Pather – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
The management of human fetal and embryological collections presents an ethical challenge that can be explored from different perspectives, particularly when considering informed consent. The "micro ethics" level focuses on parties engaged in giving and receiving human tissue while the "macro ethics" level focusses on the…

Lauren K. Bagian; Danielle C. Davis; Ryan C. Parker; Claudia F. Mosley; Joy Y. Balta – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Human body donors play a crucial role in anatomical education, research, and clinical skills training, and those interested in anatomical donation may bequeath their bodies to body donation programs (BDPs). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the perspective of body donors on the donation process in order to make recommendations for…

William J. Choi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Recent controversies over the mismanagement of body donors in US medical schools have raised public concerns over the ethical treatment of bodies in "anatomical gift" programs. Despite widespread moral outrage at such cases, medical students may still make seemingly inconsequential mistakes or jokes that in fact constitute acts of…

Recently, there has been an emphasis on keeping the study of anatomy using donor material confined to the domain of medical and allied healthcare professionals. Given the abundance of both accurate and inaccurate information online, coupled with a heightened focus on health following the COVID-19 pandemic, one may question whether it is time to…

Johnson, Laura E.; McArthur, Angela; Schmitt, Brandi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
In US anatomical gift law, the record on which a person consents to body donation after death is referred to as a document of gift (DG). Due to the lack of legal requirements around minimum information standards, enacted recommendations in the United States, and the unknown variation across extant DGs, a review of publicly-available DGs from US…

As a fundamental subject of medical education, human anatomy plays a critical role in the development of medical science. However, because of multiple factors including cultural conservativism and limited social understanding, China is facing a particularly severe shortage of bodies donated for anatomy education. Zhengzhou University (ZZU) has…

Keet, Kerri; Pillay, Pamela; Billings, Brendon K.; Satyapal, Kapil S.; Kramer, Beverley – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Historically, adverse events have reflected poorly on both the practice of dissection and the perception of the discipline of anatomy. The recent public dissection of a body donor is a regression to an unethical historical practice and was strongly denounced by anatomists around the world. The individual whose donated body was sourced from a…
