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…

Ching-Tien Lee; Jiz-Yuh Wang – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Among the basic medical sciences, anatomy and physiology (anatomy & physiology) is a fundamental subject for students majoring in nursing. Due to its diversity and difficulty, nursing students experience stress when studying it. Previous graduates generally presented lower achievements in anatomy & physiology than in other nursing-related…

Lilian H. Fellner; Svetlana M. King; Christine M. Barry – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Pelvic anatomy is considered challenging to teach and learn, partly because its complexity can make it difficult to conceptualize. Educational researchers recognize the value of a spiraling curriculum to develop clinically orientated anatomy knowledge for health professionals, but most studies have focused on the preclinical years. It is unclear…

Richard L. Goodwin; Asa C. Black Jr.; Thomas I. Nathaniel – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Basic science, clinical science, and health system science (HSS) have become three pillars of integration upon which modern, post-Flexner, medical education is now based. Because of this new approach to curricular integration in a clinical presentation curruculum, medical training is now placed in the context of healthcare delivery. This study…

Melanie Neumeier; Yuwaraj Narnaware – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Nursing students struggle to retain enough anatomical knowledge to meet their entry to practice competencies, but what knowledge is missing and when this occurs has been previously unexplored. A cohort of 80 nursing students were given multiple choice quizzes to assess their anatomical knowledge on 11 different organ systems during their second,…

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…

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…

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…

Benjamin Arko-Boham; Kofi Ampofo Abankwah; Kevin Adutwum-Ofosu; John Ahenkorah; Bismarck Afedo Hottor; Nii Koney-Kwaku Koney – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
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,…

M. Melissa Gross; Jennifer E. Gear; Wendy M. Sepponen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Surface anatomy is an important skill for students in preparation for patient care, and peer examination is often used to teach musculoskeletal and surface anatomy. An alternative pedagogical approach is to use bodies represented in artworks. Represented bodies display fictive anatomy, providing students with the opportunity to apply their…

The presented course, established 2016 as a compulsory elective for 22nd-year bachelor medical students, aimed to enhance deep learning of upper and lower limb anatomy from a clinical perspective by a maximum of student-centered activities combining hands-on skills training with team-learning. Three cohorts (in total 60 students) participated in…

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…
