Didactic and laboratory anatomical education have seen significant reductions in the medical school curriculum due, in part, to the current shift from basic science to more clinically based teaching in North American medical schools. In order to increase medical student exposure to anatomy, with clinical applicability, a student‐run initiative called surgically oriented anatomy prosectors (SOAP) club was created within the extracurricular program at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry… 
Does learning in clinical context in anatomical sciences improve examination results, learning motivation, or learning orientation?
TLDR
The results suggest that students enrolled in thegross anatomy course, who were simultaneously provided with the opportunity to learn in clinical context, were more likely to be successful at maintaining learning motivation and learning orientation required for the learning process, than students who attended the gross anatomy course alone.
A Surgical View of Anatomy: Perspectives from Students and Instructors
TLDR
This viewpoint commentary highlights perspectives from students and instructors that suggest the value of a surgical approach to anatomical education for medical students preparing for procedure‐oriented residencies.
"Bedside Anatomy": A Tool to Contextualize Learning and Introduce Surgical Careers.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that positive experiences with surgical residents and introduction to representative surgical cases early in the medical school curriculum can provide a real-world context for learning anatomy and encourage students to consider a surgical career.
Simulation-Based Learning Strategies to Teach Undergraduate Students Basic Surgical Skills: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
The SBL design framework was devised, providing a foundation upon which future SBL interventions can be designed such that learning outcomes are optimized, and standardization of these efforts can be accelerated.
Interactive anatomical and surgical live stream lectures improve students' academic performance in applied clinical anatomy
TLDR
The TSC successfully teaches the clinical application of anatomical knowledge and students who attended the TSC in addition to the dissection course were able to answer CA‐MC questions significantly better than students who did not attend the T SC.
The role of student surgical interest groups and surgical Olympiads in anatomical and surgical undergraduate training in Russia
TLDR
The present article emphasizes the role of student interest groups and surgical Olympiads in clinical anatomical and surgical undergraduate training in Russia.
The role of anatomy demonstrators: A surgical trainees' perspective
TLDR
It is indicated that anatomy demonstrating delivers important benefits to early surgical trainees, in addition to those received by the students that they teach, as well as the stakeholders have acknowledged and addressed the outcomes.
Education through recreation.
TLDR
By this time of year, many specialty societies will have completed their annual meetings or winter symposia, where members obtain most of their annual continuing professional development credits, and the opportunities for leisure were restricted by a seemingly endless wave of puritanical reform.

TLDR
The case-directed anatomy program was developed, which uses clinical cases to introduce anatomical information that is reinforced using prosected cadavers and imaging in the context of a nonlecture, problem-based, organ-systems-oriented curriculum.
Integrating surgical skills education into the anatomy laboratory.
TLDR
A needs-based surgical skills curriculum can be integrated into the traditional first-y anatomy course without detracting from didactic instruction in anatomy and may translate into greater confidence on the wards and increased interest in surgical careers.
Perspectives in medical education 8. Enhancing preclinical education in Japan with a clinically focused, interactive anatomy curriculum.
TLDR
The Surgical Faculty must be incorporated in the organization and teaching of the Anatomy curriculum, and core content can be pared down to only what is considered essential to provide a foundation for the later clinical years, and the clinical importance of that content will be self-evident to students.
Do we need dissection in an integrated problem-based learning medical course? Perceptions of first- and second-year students
TLDR
Both first- and second-year medical students, regardless of their gender, academic background, or citizenship felt that the time devoted to dissection classes were not adequate and good anatomy textbooks were perceived as an excellent resource for learning anatomy.
Student‐directed fresh tissue anatomy course for physician assistants
TLDR
The organization of a clinical anatomy course with a peer taught unembalmed (fresh‐tissue) cadaver laboratory in the 2010 summer term of a new physician assistant program is described.

TLDR
The benefit of providing formal anatomy education to residents and surgical fellows is described in the literature, specifically noting improvement in written test scores and surgical application.
Resident perceptions of anatomy education: A survey of medical school alumni from two different anatomy curricula and multiple medical specialties
TLDR
Alumni that included residents from the original and new shortened curricula were surveyed, and fourth year anatomy electives were highly valued by residents, and respondents felt that they should be offered to students as a way of revisiting anatomy following the 1st year of clinical training.
Surgeons as medical school educators: An untapped resource
TLDR
While student opinion of surgeons as educators improved, there were no significant changes in student interest in surgery as a career nor change in performance on written examinations over the Anatomy content covered by the surgeons.
Surgical Clinical Correlates in Anatomy: Design and implementation of a first‐year medical school program
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the first‐year medical students, who take the Surgical Clinical Correlates in Anatomy program, will perform better than their peers in their anatomy course, their surgical clerkships and ultimately choose surgical residencies.
What impact does anatomy education have on clinical practice?
TLDR
Using cadaveric material was an effective way of learning anatomy; assessment was a major motivator; and around half of students forgot a lot of anatomy but that knowledge came back easily.
