The title of this book, “Teaching Anatomy: A Practical Guide,” deserves some explanation. The word teaching has unfortunately become an unpopular word in educational writing. It is often associated with passive learning with the teacher playing the role of the “sage on the stage.” Knowledge is seen as packages transferrable from the teacher to the students, whose role is only to be receivers of the packages. But to us, teaching involves all activities that a teacher does to help students learn. It involves being both a “sage on the stage” and a “guide on the side.” With the current trend toward a system-based approach to medical education, a book that focuses on the teaching of anatomy may seem old fashioned. After all, over the past few decades, anatomy has become increasingly integrated into the wider curriculum and is less of an isolated subject. However, this shift in the curriculum and educational philosophy has not destroyed anatomy’s long history as a distinct discipline. Anatomy, especially gross anatomy, still plays a unique role in many healthcare programs: it has frequently become the only practical course that students will experience in the early part of the medical curriculum. Students oftentimes learn gross anatomy from possibly one of the most mystical teaching aids: their fi rst “patients,” the cadavers. Cadaveric dissection provides a unique opportunity for students to be introduced to issues of life, death, and suffering and to learn the “soft” skills of medicine. Through working together in the dissection laboratory, students learn skills like refl ection, teamwork, communication, professionalism, and ethics, which are all important to their future healthcare careers.
