∑ 4 written examinations (48 % of course grade) and 4 laboratory examinations (32 % of course grade)
∑ The final examination (20 % of course grade) is a subject examination purchased from and graded by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).
Competency I: Effective Communication
The students will be evaluated for effective oral communication during lectures and in the laboratory.
Effectiveness in written communication will be evaluated by the requirement of cadaver dissection reports and autopsy reports:
Cadaver Dissection Reports: During the course of the semester, the students will be required to keep a daily log of pathological findings in their assigned cadaver. This daily log will form the basis of a final report on the cadaver to be submitted no later than at the time of the final examination. This is a statewide requirement by the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.
Autopsy reports: Students will be organized into teams of 4. Each student is required to attend at least 1 autopsy during the fall semester. A representative from each student team will have the responsibility of contacting the other team members when an autopsy is available. Dr. Roland Kohr, Forensic Pathologist and Vigo County Medical Coroner, will contact teams after 3 pm during weekdays or on the weekends, when a case is available. Students will report to Regional Hospital to view the autopsy. Each student will be required to prepare a written report, which includes a one-page summary of the case. A second page will include the student's personal thoughts about the autopsy experience (Competency V: Self-awareness, self-care and personal growth). Autopsy reports are to be submitted no later than at the time of the final examination.
Competency II: Basic Clinical Skills
The students will be evaluated on their ability to derive clinically relevant anatomical information from X-rays, CT and MR scans at an introductory level. The students will also be evaluated on their knowledge of surface anatomy and their ability to use basic physical examination procedure.
Competency III: Using Science to Guide Diagnosis, Management, Therapeutics, and Prevention.
To achieve level 1, students must:
Assessment tools will include:
Competency IV: Lifelong Learning
The level 1 student will meet the criteria for lifelong learning by exhibiting the following skills within the structured setting of Gross Anatomy: framing a question, utilizing modern information searching modalities, organizing data, compiling and using the information. These skills will be assessed by relevant topics of clinical correlations in Gross Anatomy.
Competency V: Self-awareness, self-care and personal growth
This competency will be satisfied by the student's personal essay on the autopsy experience (see Competency I above).
Competency VIII: Problem Solving
The level 1 student will display competence in the basic problem solving skills necessary to acquire a passing grade in written and oral examination questions emphasizing clinical correlations for Gross Anatomy.
