Nadav Aridan; Michal Bernstein-Eliav; Dana Gamzo; Maya Schmeidler; Niv Tik; Ido Tavor – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Anatomy studies are an essential part of medical training. The study of neuroanatomy in particular presents students with a unique challenge of three-dimensional spatial understanding. Virtual Reality (VR) has been suggested to address this challenge, yet the majority of previous reports have implemented computer-generated or imaging-based models…

Renato L. Previdelli; Emma Boardman; Michael Frill; Stephen Frean; Sarah B. Channon – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
An innovative series of dissections of the canine abdomen was created to facilitate social distancing in the dissection room following COVID-19 restrictions imposed in the UK. In groups of six, first-year veterinary students took turns dissecting selected parts of the canine abdomen while maintaining social distancing and documenting their work…

Ana Oliveira; Yasmeen Mezil; Noori Akhtar-Danesh; Andrew Palombella; Jasmine Rockarts; Sarah Wojkowski; Bruce Wainman – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Interprofessional anatomy dissection (IAD) courses increase students' readiness for interprofessional education (IPE) both in-person and online. During the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual environments for anatomy learning were perceived as less effective. Hybrid instruction approaches emerged but have been scarcely evaluated. This study assessed…

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…

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…

Moro, Christian – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Of the many disruptive technologies being introduced within modern curricula, the metaverse, is of particular interest for its ability to transform the environment in which students learn. The modern metaverse refers to a computer-generated world which is networked, immersive, and allows users to interact with others by engaging a number of senses…

Darici, Dogus; Schneider, Agnes Yüeh-Dan; Missler, Markus; Pfleiderer, Bettina – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Sex and gender bias in anatomy learning materials are considered a "hidden obstacle" to gender equity in medical curricula. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether quantitative sex and gender biases do exist in popular anatomy e-learning platforms and compare the results with those found in contemporary textbooks and…

Tan, Jun Wen; Chong, Darren Kai Siang; Ng, Kian Bee; Car, Lorainne Tudor; Mogali, Sreenivasulu Reddy – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Serious games may resolve problems relating to low motivation in complex medical topics such as anatomy. However, they remain relatively novel introductions to the science of learning, and further research is required to ascertain their benefits. This study describes the overall development and testing of a digital serious boardgame designed to…

Cullinane, Dearbhla P.; Barry, Denis S. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Prior to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, anatomy practical sessions at Trinity College Dublin involved eight to 10 students per donor station, rotating between digital learning, anatomical models/osteology, and dissection activities for three hours weekly. To maintain cadaveric participation in the anatomy laboratory while…

Wang, Catherine; McWatt, Sean C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
As hours devoted to human anatomy curricula fall under threat and curricular delivery methods remain in flux, many new teaching innovations are emerging, which require comprehensive evaluation to ensure evidence-based teaching is maintained. Although grades are the predominant measure of 'learning', alternative metrics can assess more nuanced and…

Olivares-Perez, Marcus E.; Graglia, Sally; Harmon, Derek J.; Klein, Barbie A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Despite its significant clinical use, there is no standardized point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) curriculum in undergraduate medical education. As Covid-19 abruptly mandated the use of virtual education, instructors were challenged to incorporate and improve POCUS education within these new constraints. It was hypothesized that integrating…

Cappellen van Walsum, Anne-Marie van; Henssen, Dylan J. H. A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Polarized light imaging (PLI) is a new method which quantifies and visualizes nerve fiber direction. In this study, the educational value of PLI sections of the human brainstem were compared to histological sections stained with Luxol fast blue (LFB) using e-learning modules. Mental Rotations Test (MRT) was used to assess the spatial ability.…

Linton, Andrea; Garrett, Andrew C.; Ivie, Kenneth R., Jr.; Jones, Jay D.; Martin, Jason F.; Delcambre, Jeremy J.; Magee, Christianne – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Innovative reforms in medical education will require instructional tools to support these changes and to give students more flexibility in where and how they learn. At Colorado State University, the software program Virtual Canine Anatomy (VCA) was developed to assist student learning both inside and outside the anatomical laboratory. The program…

Bhat, Ghulam Mohammad; Bhat, Ishfaq Hussain; Shahdad, Shaheen; Rashid, Saima; Khan, Mudasir Ahmad; Patloo, Ajaz Ahmad – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Recent advance in medical education is in correlation with the advances in information technology and thus computer-based learning is being increasingly employed. The objective of the present study was to design and evaluate an e-learning module in anatomy and assess the perceptions of students and faculty about this e-learning module. The…
