d'Arnaud, Lindsey; Husmann, Polly R. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Prior research has reported that experience in undergraduate anatomy did not significantly affect students' grades in professional schools, yet students would still recommend anatomy experience prior to medical school. It has been further posited that this prior experience may have benefits that do not appear in grade outcomes, such as decreased…

El-Haddad, Joyce; Prvan, Tania; Štrkalj, Goran – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Many medical schools practice commemorative ceremonies to honor body donors. Attitudes of medical education stakeholders toward these ceremonies have not yet been fully investigated. The aim of this study was to explore anatomy students' attitudes toward commemorations at a multicultural institution which has not introduced these ceremonies yet. A…

Savoldi, Fabio; Yeung, Andy W. K.; Tanaka, Ray; Mohammad Zadeh, Lisa S.; Montalvao, Carla; Bornstein, Michael M.; Tsoi, James K. H. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Learning bone anatomy of the skull is a complex topic involving three-dimensional information. The impact of the use of human dry skulls and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging was investigated in the teaching of undergraduate dental students. Sixty-four first-year students in the University of Hong Kong were randomly divided into eight…

Dua, Anoushka; Coppola, Kristen M.; Mulheron, George W.; Troupe, David; Lebeau, Robert – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Gross anatomy dissection in contemporary medical education must balance the traditional value of learning from the cadaver with the possibilities created by the use of digital tools as supplemental resources that personalize and deepen the student learning experience. This study broadly examined the design, implementation, and use of…

Karamaroudis, Stefanos; Poulogiannopoulou, Eleni; Sotiropoulos, Marinos G.; Kalantzis, Thomas; Johnson, Elizabeth O. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
In light of the current shifts in medical education from traditional lectures to more active teaching modalities, a peer-teaching program was introduced to a compulsory, second-year neuroanatomy course. A cross-sectional survey of 527 medical students in the six-year medical program of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens was…

Phillips, Andrew W.; Eason, Hunter; Straus, Christopher M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Recently, faculty at Pritzker School of Medicine, The University of Chicago, have made efforts to improve the depth of radiological anatomy knowledge that students have, but no insights exist as to student and resident opinions of how clinically helpful deep anatomical understanding is. A single-institution survey of second- and fourth-year…

Hasselblatt, Friederike; Messerer, David A. C.; Keis, Oliver; Böckers, Tobias M.; Böckers, Anja – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Many Anglo-American universities have undertaken a paradigm shift in how the dissection of human material is approached, such that students are encouraged to learn about the lives of body donors, and to respectfully "personalize" them as human beings, rather than treating the specimens as anonymous cadavers. For the purposes of this…

Chakraborty, Tandra R.; Cooperstein, Deborah F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
This study examined the use of iPads with anatomy applications (apps) in the laboratory sections of the largest undergraduate course at the university, Anatomy and Physiology, serving more than 300 students. The majority of these students were nursing, exercise science/physical education and biology majors. With a student survey (student opinion)…

Flack, Natasha A. M. S.; Nicholson, Helen D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Dissection has long been the accepted method for teaching anatomy to medical students. More recently, some educators have suggested that easier, cheaper, alternative methods are just as effective. But what do the students think? This paper aimed to identify what undergraduate medical students learn, how they cope, and what effects participating in…

Kennel, Larissa; Martin, David M. A.; Shaw, Hannah; Wilkinson, Tracey – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Thiel-embalmed cadavers, which have been adopted for use in anatomy teaching in relatively few universities, show greater flexibility and color retention compared to formalin-embalmed cadavers, properties which might be considered advantageous for anatomy teaching. This study aimed to investigate student attitudes toward the dissection experience…

Hlavac, Rebecca J.; Klaus, Rachel; Betts, Kourtney; Smith, Shilo M.; Stabio, Maureen E. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Medical schools in the United States continue to undergo curricular change, reorganization, and reformation as more schools transition to an integrated curriculum. Anatomy educators must find novel approaches to teach in a way that will bridge multiple disciplines. The cadaveric extraction of the central nervous system (CNS) provides an…

Smith, Jacob P.; Kendall, John L.; Royer, Danielle F. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
This study describes a new teaching model for ultrasound (US) training, and evaluates its effect on medical student attitudes toward US. First year medical students participated in hands-on US during human gross anatomy (2014 N = 183; 2015 N = 182). The sessions were facilitated by clinicians alone in 2014, and by anatomy teaching assistant…

Abdel Meguid, Eiman M.; Khalil, Mohammed K. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Motivation and learning are inter-related. It is well known that motivating learners is clearly a complex endeavor, which can be influenced by the educational program and the learning environment. Limited research has been conducted to examine students' motivation as a method to assess the effectiveness of dissection in medical education. This…

Royer, Danielle F.; Kessler, Ross; Stowell, Jeffrey R. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Ultrasound (US) can enhance anatomy education, yet is incorporated into few non-medical anatomy programs. This study is the first to evaluate the impact of US training in gross anatomy for non-medical students in the United States. All 32 master's students enrolled in gross anatomy with the anatomy-centered ultrasound (ACUS) curriculum were…

Klima, Stefan; Hepp, Pierre; Löffler, Sabine; Cornwall, Jon; Hammer, Niels – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
Integration of anatomy and clinical teaching is a theoretical ideal, yet there is a worldwide paucity of such amalgamation. These teaching models provide support for medical trainees, an important element in Germany where orthopedic intern numbers have declined and anecdotal evidence suggests disinterest in orthopedics. The aim of the study was to…
