White, Lloyd J.; McGowan, Heath W.; McDonald, Aaron C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The development of new technologies and ensuing pedagogical research has led many tertiary institutions to integrate and adopt online learning strategies. The authors of this study have incorporated online learning strategies into existing educational practices of a second year anatomy course, resulting in half of the course content delivered via…

Mullikin, Trey C.; Shahi, Varun; Grbic, Douglas; Pawlina, Wojciech; Hafferty, Frederic W. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
This article explores the assessment of professionalism within a cohort of medical students during a sequential 13-week medical school histology and anatomy course. Across seven data points, students were asked to identify a professionalism role model from amongst their peers and to score Likert-structured rationales for their decision. Based on…

Young, Julia C.; Quayle, Michelle R.; Adams, Justin W.; Bertram, John F.; McMenamin, Paul G. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The practical aspect of human developmental biology education is often limited to the observation and use of animal models to illustrate developmental anatomy. This is due in part to the difficulty of accessing human embryonic and fetal specimens, and the sensitivity inherent to presenting these specimens as teaching materials. This report…

Gbolahan Balogun, Wasiu – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Anatomy education forms the foundation of a successful medical education. This has necessitated the development of innovative ideas to meet up with current realities. Despite these innovative ideas, there are challenges facing anatomy education, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Problems such as inadequate teaching experts and outdated curricula…

Pickles, Kylie; Ivanusic, Jason J.; Xiao, Junhua; Durward, Callum; Ryan, Andrea B.; Hayes, Jennifer A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Historical loss of staff and teaching resources in Cambodia has resulted in significant challenges to anatomy education. Small group anatomy teaching opportunities are limited. A visit to Cambodia by a teaching team from the University of Melbourne in 2010 demonstrated it was possible to implement well-resourced anatomy workshops for this purpose.…

Wilson, Adam B.; Brown, Kirsten M.; Misch, Jonathan; Miller, Corinne H.; Klein, Barbie A.; Taylor, Melissa A.; Goodwin, Michael; Boyle, Eve K.; Hoppe, Chantal; Lazarus, Michelle D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
While prior meta-analyses in anatomy education have explored the effects of laboratory pedagogies and histology media on learner performance, the effects of student-centered learning (SCL) and computer-aided instruction (CAI) have not been broadly evaluated. This research sought to answer the question, "How effective are student-centered…

Viana, Ricardo Borges; Campos, Mário Hebling; Santos, Douglas de Assis Teles; Xavier, Isabela Cristina Maioni; Vancini, Rodrigo Luiz; Andrade, Marília Santos; de Lira, Claudio Andre Barbosa – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Peer and near-peer teaching programs are common in medical undergraduate courses. However, there are no studies that have investigated the effectiveness of a near-peer teaching program on the academic performance of undergraduate students pursuing sport and exercise science coursework. This study was conducted to analyze the effectiveness of such…

Zheng, Yu Hang; Palombella, Andrew; Salfi, Jenn; Wainman, Bruce – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Several studies have shown significant improvements in the attitudes and perceptions of healthcare professional students toward interprofessional education (IPE) immediately following intervention with IPE courses. However, there remains little evidence on the lasting effects of IPE courses and the long-term influences of these IPE experiences are…

Husmann, Polly R.; O'Loughlin, Valerie Dean – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The concept and existence of learning styles has been fraught with controversy, and recent studies have thrown their existence into doubt. Yet, many students still hold to the conventional wisdom that learning styles are legitimate, and may adapt their outside of class study strategies to match these learning styles. Thus, this study aims to…

Roach, Victoria A.; Fraser, Graham M.; Kryklywy, James H.; Mitchell, Derek G. V.; Wilson, Timothy D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Research suggests that spatial ability may predict success in complex disciplines including anatomy, where mastery requires a firm understanding of the intricate relationships occurring along the course of veins, arteries, and nerves, as they traverse through and around bones, muscles, and organs. Debate exists on the malleability of spatial…

García, Magdalena; Victory, Noemí; Navarro-Sempere, Alicia; Segovia, Yolanda – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to provide a better understanding of the main difficulties hindering undergraduate biology students in learning histology. The study utilized a self-administered questionnaire which included three closed-ended and two open-ended questions: (1) if students had difficulty in learning about each tissue type; (2) what might…

Catena, Robert D.; Carbonneau, Kira J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
A qualitative biomechanics (functional anatomy) course is a typical course in kinesiology curriculum. Most evidence suggests that biomechanics learning could be improved with the inclusion of laboratory experiences. However, implementing laboratories into biomechanics curriculum is difficult due to cost and time constraints. This study was…

Sugiura, Atsushi; Kitama, Toshihiro; Toyoura, Masahiro; Mao, Xiaoyang – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Human anatomical specimen museums are commonly used by medical, nursing, and paramedical students. Through dissection and prosection, the specimens housed in these museums allow students to appreciate the complex relationships of organs and structures in more detail than textbooks could provide. However, it may be difficult for students,…

Bietzk, Edward; Weller, Renate; Simons, Victoria; Channon, Sarah B. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Development of new methods for anatomy teaching is increasingly important as we look to modernize and supplement traditional teaching methods. In this study, a life-sized equine model, "Geoff," was painted with surface and deep anatomical structures with the aim of improving students' ability to convert theoretical knowledge into…

Smith, Claire F.; Finn, Gabrielle M.; Hennessy, Catherine; Luscombe, Ciara; Stewart, Jane; McHanwell, Stephen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
"What do students studying medicine need to know" is an important question for curriculum planners, anatomy educators and students. The Core Regional Anatomy Syllabus (CRAS), published by the Anatomical Society in 2016, contains 156 learning outcomes (LOs) and has informed "what needs to be known." This project explored how…
