Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
The aim of the project is to demonstrate quantitative and qualitative effects of an elective course on human anatomy to get insight in students’ concepts and misconcepts in human anatomy. The student gains profound knowledge of a particular anatomical region and understands the relationship with clinical work. Practical work helps to improve theoretical knowledge and learn more about individual specialties of the human body. As a result of this project students will be able to understand the detailed structure of the anatomical region they will be working with, its normal and abnormal ontogenetic development and the possible illnesses, connected with this anatomical region. The importance of this project is that the student becomes well prepared for the latter clinical and non-clinical disciplines due to the deep knowledge of anatomy.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is that the student gains profound knowledge of a particular anatomical region and understands the relationship with clinical work.
What techniques and methods are used?
The used techniques are: dissection, 3D modeling, cross-sectional techniques, which primarily involves removing the skin and dissecting the muscles along with any superficial cutaneous veins and nerves. Your equipment will consist of a dissecting tray, dissecting scissors, forceps (like tweezers), probe (hooked tool), dissecting pins, mat and a scalpel. For the data analysis the participants of the research will have to compare the anatomical region they were studying and the ideal model of this region to recognize any anatomical variations or deviations.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks of the student will be performed on his/her own
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The student will take active part in the practical aspect of the project. Anatomical dissection will be done under supervision and also by the students themselves. The participants will also have to analyze the collected data and correlate it with their theoretical knowledge. The analysis of the data includes modeling of the studied anatomical region and comparison with the normal structure. Based on this the student will identify the development variations and development disturbances.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
No
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a poster
- The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Basic knowledge of anatomy is obligatorily required. It is highly welcomed if a student had experience of preparation before. Basic knowledge of the main surgical instruments will also be very helpful in the project. Subjects passed: anatomy.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
No
