Abstract [en]

Aim: The presentation will describe medical students’

experiences of studying and learning anatomy, and explore

ways in which students understand and approach the subject

of anatomy.

Summary of work: Data collected through individual interviews

with 13 students enrolled in the medical programme at a large

Swedish medical university, were subjected to a qualitative

content analysis bringing to the fore dominant themes in the

students’ accounts illustrating how they had set about studying

and learning.

Summary of results: The analysis revealed that the students’

accounts revolved around four main themes addressing

different aspects of the process of studying and learning

anatomy: 1) the nature of anatomical knowledge describing

variations in the students’ conceptions of anatomy; 2) the

development of anatomical understanding, identifying different

kinds of anatomical understanding sought after by students; 3)

the role of anatomical dissections, focusing on dissection as a

tool for developing a professional identity; and 4) the relation

between teaching and examination, addressing the need for

assessment procedures congruous with the forms of

understanding encouraged in teaching.

Conclusions: These findings will be discussed in relation to

current research on learning in higher education, and will

subsequently inform the development of a national inventory

of medical students’ ways of studying and learning.
