Dissabandara, Lakal O.; Nawaratna, Sujeevi; Nirthanan, Selvanayagam – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The objective structured practical examination (OSPE) is a reliable assessment of practical skills in anatomy teaching. It is often administered as low-stake assessments to track progress at multiple time points in anatomy curricula. Standard-setting OSPEs to derive a pass mark and to ensure assessment quality and rigor is a complex task. This…

VanLeuven, Ariel J.; Szymik, Brett G.; Ramsey, Lynn M.; Hesse, DeLoris Wenzel – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Collaborative testing and its benefits have been reported in diverse disciplines across different types of academic institutions. However, there has been minimal research conducted on collaborative assessments in medical schools, particularly in the gross anatomy laboratory. The objectives of this study were to explore the effect of collaborative…

Valera-Calero, Juan Antonio; Navarro-Santana, Marcos José; Fernández-de-las-Peñas, César; Varol, Umut; López-de-Uralde-Villanueva, Ibai; Rodríguez-López, Elena Sonsoles; Plaza-Manzano, Gustavo – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Since there is an increasing rate of physiotherapists using invasive procedures during the clinical practice, understanding the cross-sectional anatomy and radiological images is essential for ensuring patients' safety during these interventions. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the students' opinion of including cross-sectional and…

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…

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,…

Johnson, Laura E.; McArthur, Angela; Schmitt, Brandi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
In US anatomical gift law, the record on which a person consents to body donation after death is referred to as a document of gift (DG). Due to the lack of legal requirements around minimum information standards, enacted recommendations in the United States, and the unknown variation across extant DGs, a review of publicly-available DGs from US…

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…

Nzenwa, Ikemsinachi C.; Iqbal, Hassan A.; Bazira, Peter J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The role of anatomical variability in safe clinical practice is underappreciated. A lack of familiarity of anatomical variations is at the center of a multitude of medical and surgical errors. The recent rise in litigation due to such errors suggests that patient care may be compromised. This makes the knowledge of anatomical variation essential…

Near-peer teaching has been widely implemented in medical schools and the benefits for the near-peer teachers (NPTs), the students, and the institution have been well documented. However, NPT training methods and perceptions of such have been limited. A four-year clinical anatomy and surgical training program was established (est. 2019) as part of…

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…

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…

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…

Hortsch, Michael – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The term "histology" was coined a little over 200 years ago and the subject has always relied on microscopy as its defining technology. Microscopy was and still is an essential approach for the description of cellular components and their arrangements in living organisms. For more than a century and a half, histology or microanatomy has…

Pettersson, Anna F.; Karlgren, Klas; Al-Saadi, Jonathan; Hjelmqvist, Hans; Meister, Björn; Zeberg, Hugo; Silén, Charlotte – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Learning anatomy holds specific challenges, like the appreciation of three-dimensional relationships between anatomical structures. So far, there is limited knowledge about how students construct their understanding of topographic anatomy. By understanding the processes by which students learn anatomical structures in 3D, educators will be better…

Keet, Kerri; Pillay, Pamela; Billings, Brendon K.; Satyapal, Kapil S.; Kramer, Beverley – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Historically, adverse events have reflected poorly on both the practice of dissection and the perception of the discipline of anatomy. The recent public dissection of a body donor is a regression to an unethical historical practice and was strongly denounced by anatomists around the world. The individual whose donated body was sourced from a…
