Special Issue "Advances in Human Anatomy: Research Development and Innovative Medical Training"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2021.
Human anatomy is fundamental for medical education. The rise of new mini-invasive techniques, technological devices and digital technologies requires a constant and advanced study of the human body in order to obtain precise and effective results. Indeed, the training on the cadaver is essential to guarantee basic and specialized medical training for different categories of health professionals and to test and develop new medical technologies and techniques. The importance of gross anatomy studies is translational between different medical fields and it combines the most innovative technologies (augmented reality, new surgical mini-invasive techniques, 3D printed scaffold, morphology, functional morphology, robotic devices, tissue engineering, cellular and molecular approaches, molecular anthropology and many others) with gross anatomy and basic sciences. Certainly, the possibility of gross anatomy studies is directly related to the generosity of the donators that decide to adhere to a body donation program.
Moreover, the study of the potentialities of human anatomy is not only related to the development of new techniques, but also to the upgrade of the teaching and learning models that combine an old technique, such as the cadaveric dissection, with the new methods of education (tutor-based medical teaching, graphic medicine, online teaching, manual and procedural skill-based learning). The spectrum of human anatomy is truly very broad, as it involves students from the first years of Medical Schools (Medicine and Surgery, Physiotherapy, Motor and Sport Sciences, Dentistry, Pharmacology and many others) to experienced physicians and many different health professionals.
Therefore, research development and medical training are strictly related and interconnected with human anatomy and body donation programs, guaranteeing medical improvement and advances with translational and innovative approaches.
Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard, coupled with a practical focus on the potentiality of human anatomy in research development and medical training.
