Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate if student number is a factor for the efficacy of cadaveric demonstrations
in undergraduate anatomy education.
Methods: For a female pelvic anatomy cadaveric demonstration lecture of second-year medical students at the anatomy laboratory
of Hacettepe University School of Medicine, students were divided into 3 groups of 45, 30 and 15 participants. Each group
was further divided into 3 subgroups. Thus, there were 3 groups with 15 participants, 3 subgroups with 10 participants and 3
subgroups with 5 participants (3×15, 3×10, 3×5). After the cadaveric demonstration, the participants were asked if they had
seen the structure previously listed in the checklist or not.
Results: The number of medical students who missed small anatomical structures such as the umbilical artery, ureter or uterine
artery during the cadaveric demonstration significantly decreased as the number of students per cadaver table decreased
(p<0.05). Best results were obtained when the number of students per cadaver table was 5. On the other hand, no significant
difference was found between the groups for missing gross anatomical structures such as the uterus, ovary or uterine tube, irrespective
of the number of participants per cadaver table (p>0.05).
Conclusion: As the number of students per cadaver table decreases, the number of overlooked or missed structures will
decrease.
