Anatomical Sciences Education Vol. 5, Issue 6, 2012 Cover Image


Peer-teachers receive instruction from Drs. Johnson (center), Charchanti (right) and Troupis (left) on details of the deep structures of the cerebral hemispheres. These training sessions focus on reviewing material and honing teaching skills, so that peer teachers can assist during the anatomy laboratory for second-year medical students. Using checklists, peer teachers review structures on cadaveric specimens, models, crosssections, as well as on programs available in the computer laboratory. In this issue, Dr. Johnson and her colleagues describe the integrated multimodal - multidisciplinary anatomy teaching program applied at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Ioannina, Greece.
