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…

Vicky Vandenbossche; Martin Valcke; Emmanuel Audenaert; Wouter Willaert – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of integrating ultrasound into undergraduate medical curricula. However, empirical evidence is lacking as to its effect on anatomy learning and related student cognition. Therefore, the present study compared the impact of echocardiography-based instruction with narrated…

Koppes, Dorothea M.; Vesseur, Maud A. M.; Schepens-Franke, Annelieke N.; Kruitwagen, Rutgerus F. P. M.; Notten, Kim J. B.; Scheele, Fedde – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Traditionally, anatomy was one of the basic pillars of medical training. However, due to the expansion of medical science and medical knowledge in general, anatomy teaching has steadily declined and the way anatomy is taught has changed. These changes go hand in hand with growing literature about a perceived and proven lack of anatomical…

Cale, Andrew S.; Hoffman, Leslie A.; McNulty, Margaret A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Metacognition, the ability to self-regulate one's learning and performance, has been shown to improve student outcomes. Anatomy is recognized as one of the toughest courses in allied health curricula, and students could benefit from metacognitive activities. The purpose of this study was to explore the changes in metacognition of allied health…

Odontogenic orofacial space infection is an important topic in the dental curriculum. However, dental students do encounter difficulties in identifying the patterns of odontogenic infection spreading through fascial spaces. The implementation of game concepts might allow them to actively learn this topic by engagement. This research aimed to…

Understanding the three-dimensional (3D) structure of the human skull is imperative for medical courses. However, medical students are overwhelmed by the spatial complexity of the skull. Separated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) bone models have advantages as learning tools, but they are fragile and expensive. This study aimed to reconstruct 3D-printed…

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…

Barger, J. Bradley; Resuehr, David; Edwards, Danielle N. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Incorporation of radiology training into anatomy education from community college to health professional schools is becoming increasingly popular. However, anatomy educators generally lack training in common radiology modalities, including X-ray, CT, MRI, and ultrasound. Professional development or continuing education courses provide current and…

Taylor, Melissa A.; Loder, Danielle M.; Herr, Michael J.; Nichols, Richard A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Many medical schools have undergone curricular reform recently. With these reforms, time spent teaching anatomy has been reduced, and there has been a general shift to a pass/fail grading system. At Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), a new curriculum was implemented in fall 2016. The year-long human gross anatomy course taught in 2015…

Fagalde, Megan C.; McNulty, Margaret A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Health professional students often struggle with anatomy coursework despite undergraduate coursework in anatomy. Educators must identify early on whether students may struggle in order to target remediation. The purpose of the study was to elucidate whether an assessment tool administered before the start of a professional anatomy course…
