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…

James Booker; Charlotte Woodward; Charles Taylor; Alistair Robson; Scott Border – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Online anatomical resources are rising in popularity since the COVID-19 pandemic, but the pedagogical principles and effectiveness of their use remain unclear. This article aims to demonstrate evidence-informed ways in which fellow educators can create engaging online learning resources in clinical neuroanatomy and compare the effectiveness of…

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…

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…

Neuroanatomy is a notoriously challenging subject for medical students to learn. Due to the coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic, anatomical education transitioned to an online format. We assessed student performance in, and attitudes toward, an online neuroanatomy assessment compared to an in-person equivalent, as a marker of the efficacy…

Seth M. Alexander; Kaylyn B. Pogson-Morowitz; Corey S. Johnson – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Three-dimensional (3D) modeling is a recent, innovative approach to teaching anatomy. There is little literature, however, to suggest how 3D modeling is best used to teach students and whether or not students can gain the same level of understanding as they might use more traditional, hands-on, teaching methods. This study evaluated the use of a…

Geetika Ail; Frances Freer; Chui Shan Chan; Melissa Jones; John Broad; Gian Paulo Canale; Pedro Elston; Jessica Leeney; Paula Vickerton – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Immersive virtual reality (i-VR) is a powerful tool that can be used to explore virtual models in three dimensions. It could therefore be a valuable tool to supplement anatomical teaching by providing opportunities to explore spatial anatomical relationships in a virtual environment. However, there is a lack of consensus in the literature as to…

Julian Shu Kai Goh; Ramya Chandrasekaran; Srinivasa Rao Sirasanagandla; Sanchalika Acharyya; Sreenivasulu Reddy Mogali – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Plastination, a permanent preservation method for human tissues and organs, is increasingly being used in anatomy education. However, there is a paucity of systematic reviews and meta-analyses summarizing the educational efficacy of plastinated specimens. This meta-analysis compared the assessment scores of students exposed to plastinated…

Oliveira, Ana; Wainman, Bruce; Palombella, Andrew; Rockarts, Jasmine; Wojkowski, Sarah – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Interprofessional learning improves students' clinical and interprofessional competencies. COVID-19 prevented delivering in-person education and motivated the development of a virtual interprofessional cadaveric dissection (ICD) course. This study reports on the effects of a virtual ICD course compared to a previously delivered in-person course,…

Yang, Jack X.; DeYoung, Veronica; Xue, Yuanxin; Nehru, Amit; Hildebrand, Alexandra; Brewer-Deluce, Danielle; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Three-dimensional (3D) scanning and printing technology has allowed for the production of anatomical replicas at virtually any size. But what size optimizes the educational potential of 3D printing models? This study systematically investigates the effect of model size on nominal anatomy learning. The study population of 380 undergraduate…

Niedermair, Julian F.; Antipova, Veronica; Manhal, Simone; Siwetz, Martin; Wimmer-Röll, Monika; Hammer, Niels; Fellner, Franz A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Technological approaches deploying three-dimensional visualization to integrate virtual anatomy are increasingly used to provide medical students with state-of-the-art teaching. It is unclear to date to which extent virtual anatomy may help replace the dissection course. Medical students of Johannes Kepler University attend both a dissection and a…

The COVID-19 pandemic required adjustments and limitations in university teaching, thereby challenging teaching concepts in anatomy requiring in-person contact, including the gross anatomy course. Therefore, the present study investigates the impact of COVID-19-associated adjustments on students' perception of the gross anatomy course's importance…

Pereda-Nuñez, Ana; Manresa, Margarita; Webb, Sara S.; Pineda, Benjamín; Espuña, Montserrat; Ortega, Marisa; Rodríguez-Baeza, Alfonso – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Detailed knowledge of female pelvic floor anatomy is essential for midwifery and other professionals in obstetrics. Physical models have shown great potential for teaching anatomy and enhancing surgical skills. In this article, we introduce an innovative physical anatomy model called "Pelvic+" to teach anatomical relationships in the…

Rabattu, Pierre-Yves; Debarnot, Ursula; Hoyek, Nady – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Descriptive and functional anatomy is one of the most important sciences for kinesiology students. Anatomy learning requires spatial and motor imagery abilities. Learning anatomy is complex when teaching methods and instructional tools do not appropriately develop spatial and motor imagery abilities. Recent technological developments such as…

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…
