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…

Ellen M. Robertson; Sara M. Allison; Caroline M. Mueller; Andrew C. Ferriby; Alex R. Roth; Ranjan Batra – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Brain dissection is typically an important part of teaching neuroscience in health professional programs. This results in the need to effectively remove brains, which is often performed in a gross anatomy laboratory in the same curriculum. The aim of this study was to determine the most effective method of brain removal based on the time required…

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…

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…

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…

Anatomy instructional methods varied widely during the COVID-19 pandemic and programs are assessing innovations for retention. Learning preferences were assessed among medical students dichotomized as elective dissectors (ED) or non-dissectors (ND) during the COVID-19 partial re-opening in 2020 (preclinical) and again in 2022 after clinical…

Patrick Maffucci; Chang H. Park; Mo Shirur; Benjamin Hyers; Adam I. Levine; Daniel Katz; Garrett W. Burnett; Jeffrey T. Laitman – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Anatomy is an essential component of clinical anesthesiology. The use of simulated patients and alternative materials, including embalmed human bodies, have become increasingly common during resident physician training due to the deemphasis on anatomical education during undergraduate medical training. In this report, the need for a more extensive…

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…

Meng-Lin Liao; Chi-Chuan Yeh; June-Horng Lue; Ming-Fong Chang – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
It can be difficult for some students to learn three-dimensional anatomical structure concepts. While virtual reality (VR) systems have been reported as helpful for learning, there has been scarce research on either VR teaching strategies or the influence of visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) in the context of large anatomy classes (i.e.,…

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…

Terrado, José; Gómez, Olga; Chicharro, Deborah; García-Manzanares, Maria; Juárez, Miriam; Romo-Barrientos, Carmen; Mohedano-Moriano, Alicia; Criado-Álvarez, Juan José – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The use of cadavers is essential for veterinary anatomy learning. However, facing an animal corpse can be stressful for veterinary students because of their empathy toward animals. The objective of this study was to evaluate veterinary medicine students' emotions, feelings, and anxiety levels related to practicals with dog cadavers. Two…

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,…

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…

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…
