This is the abstract:
Objective: Cadaveric dissection has long been used as the main domain for teaching anatomy in medical schools.
However, recently with a limited number of cadavers and time for practicing dissection, prosections and anatomical
models are widely used and may replace traditional dissection. We aimed to explore the possible correlation between
practicing dissection and test results among medical students and to determine whether there are differences in
achievements between students who studied anatomy by cadaveric dissection and those who used prosections and
anatomical models.
Methods: Students were randomly assigned to one of two groups (n= 50 each). The first group studied anatomy (Upper
limb courses) by practicing dissection while the other studied it by using prosections and anatomical models. Both groups
were subjected to similar final assessments. Scores between both groups were compared by using student’s t-test.
Correlation analysis between time spent in practicing dissection (Carefully registered using a predesigned portfolio and an
attendance logbook) and assessment grades was calculated using Pearson rank correlation analysis.
Results: Students practicing dissection achieved higher grades (169± 14) than those who studied it by only using
prosections and anatomical models (142± 12, P < 0.0001). There was a correlation between time spent in practicing
dissections and overall anatomy summative assessments (r2 =0.841, P value <0.0001). Students expressed positive
responses regarding the effectiveness and value of practicing dissection.
Conclusion: We concluded that practicing dissection helps students to achieve higher results than learning using only

models and prosections. Time spent in practicing dissection correlated with final assessment results. Further researches
are required to measure not only the statistical significance of results but also their educational effectiveness and long
term learning outcomes.
