Blended Learning: An Alternative for Undergraduate Anatomy Teaching in Developing Countries
Anatomy, the study of tissues, organs and systems in the body, is an essential component in the curricula of many health professions. Due to curricular design, complexity of the learning material, and time devoted to teaching, anatomy learning could be compromised. Anatomy instructors and educational institutions must look for ways to complement anatomy teaching in order to better prepare students for what they will find at both, the graduate level and the work environment. In this review, we compared multiple approaches for anatomy teaching, and blended learning appears to give better results for contents comprehension, retention, and academic development.
