Abstract

As anatomy course hours have decreased, it has become increasingly important to provide tools that facilitate laboratory task efficiency. Digital video clips were created to present dissection guidance to medical students. The video clips communicate challenging aspects of the dissection process with succinct visual demonstrations easily accessed via an online course site. Students were asked to complete a survey designed to assess the quality and utility of the videos. Survey respondents indicated that the videos enhanced the quality of the anatomy course as well as their individual performances. This teaching tool enhances student competencies in human gross anatomy.
