Shapiro, Leonard; Hobbs, Ella; Keenan, Iain D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomical body painting has traditionally been utilized to support learner engagement and understanding of surface anatomy. Learners apply two-dimensional representations of surface markings directly on to the skin, based on the identification of key landmarks. Esthetically satisfying representations of musculature and viscera can also be…

Nawa, Nobutoshi; Numasawa, Mitsuyuki; Yamaguchi, Kumiko; Morita, Ayako; Fujiwara, Takeo; Akita, Keiichi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Although medical students learn human anatomy within a social network of friends/classmates, limited research has examined how social network structure is related to student's performance in human anatomy examinations. This study aimed to examine the association between centrality (i.e., the degree to which a student is connected to other students…

Edwards, Danielle N.; Meyer, Edgar R.; Brooks, William S.; Wilson, Adam B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Medical education has reported a shortage of anatomy educators since the 1960s. While the faculty pipeline has recently been explored, insights into retirement intentions, a key driver of faculty turnover, have yet to be investigated. With the mean age of anatomists rising, knowledge of retirement intentions among current educators is essential to…

Khan, Johara; Baatjes, Karin J.; Layman-Lemphane, Jodie I.; Correia, Janine – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, it was difficult to predict if the "cadaveric-based (golden) standard" of teaching anatomy would be possible in the unforeseeable future. This forced traditional anatomical teaching and learning practices to be transitioned to remote online platforms. This study explored the opinions…

Oliveira, André de Sá Braga; Leonel, Luciano César P. C.; LaHood, Edward R.; Hallak, Hana; Link, Michael J.; Maleszewski, Joseph J.; Pinheiro-Neto, Carlos D.; Morris, Jonathan M.; Peris-Celda, Maria – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Hands-on dissections using cadaveric tissues for neuroanatomical education are not easily available in many educational institutions due to financial, safety, and ethical factors. Supplementary pedagogical tools, for instance, 3D models of anatomical specimens acquired with photogrammetry are an efficient alternative to democratize the 3D…

Kingston, Amanda K.; Garofalo, Evan M.; Cardoza, Kristinmae; Fisher, Rebecca E. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Formative assessments are primarily used as a tool to gauge learning throughout an anatomy course. They have also been demonstrated to improve student mastery and exam performance, although the precise nature of this relationship is poorly understood. In this study, it is hypothesized that formative assessment questions targeting higher cognitive…

Oo, Eve Mon; Saw, Khin Ei Ei; Htun, Thaw Zin; Latt, Zaw Zaw – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
To achieve the simple goal of cadaveric body donation (CBD) program--gaining deceased donors--numerous scientific studies have been conducted, including the current study. This cross-sectional descriptive study used questionnaires to assess the motivational factors, attitudes, and knowledge of registered body donor participants toward CBD. Among…

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…

Hands-on courses utilizing preserved human tissues for educational training offer an important pathway to acquire basic anatomical knowledge. Owing to the reevaluation of formaldehyde limits by the European Commission, a joint approach was chosen by the German-speaking anatomies in Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) to find commonalities among…

Lai, Emily R.; Rukavina, Nadia A.; Wisco, Jonathan J.; Zumwalt, Ann C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The anatomy laboratory can incite strong emotional reactions in students, which can in turn facilitate growth in empathy, care for vulnerable others, and professionalism. Despite this, little is known about the relative emotional impacts of different laboratory modalities. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic created an opportunity to compare 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…

Gitto, Lorenzo; Middleton, Frank A.; Reynolds, Erin S.; Thangamani, Saravanan; Jaeger, Daniel A.; Mihaila, Dana M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the medical education worldwide. The infection risk for medical students and healthcare personnel who work with COVID-19 positive cadavers or tissues remains unclear. Moreover, COVID-19 positive cadavers have been rejected by medical schools, adversely impacting the continuum of medical education. Herein,…
