In the last curricular review (1995/96) radiological anatomy was introduced as an innovation in the program of the course of clinical anatomy of the Medical School. Since computer-based media are known to facilitate the understanding of the human body, computer technology was selected in the academic year of 1997/98 as an elective educational tool to teach radiological anatomy. CD-ROMs were introduced as additional instructional resources in 1997/98. This technology aimed to provide educational… Expand

Evaluation of the Clinical Anatomy Program in the Medical School of Porto by two cohorts of students
TLDR
The evaluation of the discipline in each of the two years was highly favorable for most of the parameters analyzed, and the opinion of second‐year medical students enrolled in the program concerning main aspects of the Discipline in two consecutive years was positive. Expand
Student perspectives of imaging anatomy in undergraduate medical education
TLDR
The results demonstrated that students felt the teaching of imaging anatomy influenced learning in the clinical anatomy course and subsequent clinical courses, and pointed out a need to focus teaching/learning programs toward a more practical rather than theoretical approach. Expand
Developing and implementing an assessment method to evaluate a virtual canine anatomy program.
TLDR
A computer-based anatomy program, Virtual Canine Anatomy: The Head, was incorporated into a first-year veterinary dissection laboratory two years ago to address challenges inherent in the traditional pedagogical approach and suggest positive student and faculty attitudes toward the program. Expand
Teaching medical anatomy: what is the role of imaging today?
TLDR
A relative standardization could be useful in improving the teaching of imaging anatomy, to facilitate its assessment and reinforce its effectiveness. Expand
A short course of dissection for second-year medical students at the School of Medicine of Padova
A "Short course of dissection" was introduced in 1999 for the second-year medical students at the University of Padova. The course aims to offer a direct experience of practical anatomy despite aExpand
Evaluation of practical sessions in clinical anatomy: A strategy for educational improvement
TLDR
The aim was to identify problems and to introduce changes that might improve both the program and the performance of the teaching staff, and to emphasize the importance of action‐research in assessing and improving a developing program in a basic discipline of the medical curriculum. Expand
Cadaver CT scans a useful adjunct in gross anatomy: The medical student perspective
TLDR
It is argued that better integration of the CT scans into the gross anatomy course would yield substantial benefits, and the letters sent to the Editors of Anatomical Sciences Education related to the use of postmortem CT images in anatomy courses are read. Expand
Clinical neuroanatomy module 5 years’ experience at the School of Medicine of Padova
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to ascertain the value of brain dissection in retention of neuroanatomical knowledge by medical students. Expand
Evolution of the anatomical theatre in Padova
TLDR
Due to the increase of training programs in clinical anatomy, the Institute of Human Anatomy at the University of Padova has renovated its dissecting room, with main guidelines in planning a new anatomical theatre consisting of three groups of tables. Expand
Dissection as a teaching tool: past, present, and future.
TLDR
The role of dissection itself is discussed, the value of which has been under debate for the last 30 years, and the importance of dissections is considered from different points of view: educational, bioethical, and human values. Expand

TLDR
There is a need for establishing 3-D electronic atlases of the human body, generating models of symbolic anatomical information, and developing computer programs (user interfaces) that integrate these knowledge sources and serve the needs of trainees and practitioners in different fields of the health sciences. Expand
The future of gross anatomy teaching
TLDR
A survey of U. S. departments of anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry shows that 39% of the respondent anatomy departments reported declines in the numbers of graduate students taking the human gross anatomy course; to reverse this trend the establishment of specific programs for the training of gross anatomy teachers is advocated.
