Title: Introduction to Dissection
Url: http://avstream.msm.edu/introToDissectionDL/
Creator: Wineski, Lawrence
Publisher: Morehouse School of Medicine
Description: Many health science students do not enroll in undergraduate dissection-based anatomy courses during their pre-professional education. As a result, they are not familiar with dissection instruments and the mechanics of dissection, and are poorly prepared for medical, dental, and allied health science anatomy courses. Thus, the first dissections are very challenging and require extensive help from instructors. This program is designed to alleviate those deficits. It serves as an introduction to dissection in a human gross anatomy course for first-year medical and other health science students. It can be used either as a component of a structured classroom session, or, independently by individual students. The content is presented in a series of video clips arranged in two sections, each containing multiple chapters. Section #1 is a guide to the selection of proper dissection instruments. Section #2 is an overview of how to begin the first dissection in the course, including the use of dissection tools. The program is menu-driven, allowing viewing of the entire content in sequence, or, selected chapters in any order. Student and faculty surveys indicate the program prepares students well for and improves time management during the first dissections. It is available as a web-based download and as a CD-ROM. This work was supported in part by NIH P03 1B040107 and G12-RR 03034. Note: The files must be downloaded, unzipped, extracted, and saved to your local system.
