Workshops for ANZACA 2014

11th ANZACA Conference - Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand

3-5 December 2014

 

Welcome Programme Abstracts Registration Accommodation Speakers Workshops

Workshop  "Publishing for Postgrads"

Wednesday 3rd December, 2.00-4.00pm,

$30 per student, $40 per member: 

Facilitated by Professor Rachel Spronken-Smith, Dean of the Graduate Research School, University of Otago, Dunedin.

In this workshop we will try to demystify the process of publishing. Participants will be involved in discussion about the why, what and how of getting published.
We will also consider if and how to publish during graduate research candidature.
While the workshop is targeted at postgraduates including Honours, Masters and PhD students, postdocs and new lecturers are also welcome.

 

Workshop  "Ultrasound in Teaching"

Wednesday 3rd December, 2.00-4.00pm,

$30 per student, $40 per member: 

*Please note: there is a maximum limit of 24 persons for this workshop.

Facilitated by Ms Jill Muirhead, University of Otago, Ultrasound Imaging and Education NZ, Dr Phil Blyth, Faculty of Medicine, University of Otago and Dr Latika Samalia, Department of Anatomy, University of Otago.

Integration of ultrasound into medical education and other health professional and science courses is increasing in popularity. Clinical anatomists have an important role to play in facilitating the teaching of ultrasound. In this workshop we will cover key concepts on how to effectively deliver ultrasonographic anatomy to undergraduate students using two or more regions of the body as examples. This is a hands-on workshop covering the basic techniques applicable to undergraduate use of ultrasound. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of Sonosite who will provide six ultrasound machines for use in this workshop.

Welcome to ANZACA 2014

11th ANZACA Conference - Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand

3-5 December 2014

 

Welcome Programme Abstracts Registration Accommodation Speakers Workshops

On behalf of the organising committee, we would like to welcome you to attend the 11th annual conference of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists.

The theme this year is 'Anatomy at work and play', reflecting the role clinical anatomy research has on recreational activities. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for networking and the sharing of ideas from clinical application of anatomical research to insights into novel methods of teaching.

Conference attendees are expected from a multitude of disciplines, including doctors, physiotherapists, anatomists, educators and pre and post graduate students. The conference will be organised by the Department of Anatomy of the Otago School of Medical Sciences. The conference will be held in Queenstown, Otago.

There is a range of accommodation available including the conference venue, The Heritage Hotel and a conference discount has been negotiated. In addition there are a number of other accommodation options available a short walk away. 

Pre-conference workshops planned include an ultrasound workshop, and an education workshop. There will be a welcome event on the Wednesday will allow participants to catch up before the academic program commences.

David Porta

 

Dr Porta is a Professor in the Department of Biology, Bellarmine University, Louisville, Kentucky where he teaches anatomy. His research interests are in the area of trauma biomechanics. His current projects attempt to clarify human tolerance to impact forces and define the mechanisms of injury in motor vehicle accidents and sporting activities. This work has both scientific and forensic value and he has resulted in collaboration with engineers, members of the medical profession and law enforcement agencies. Dr. Porta has served as the Research Anatomist for the Engineering Institute for Trauma & Injury Prevention at the University of Tennessee and has also performed research at Virginia Tech and the S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo. He has been a member of various societies including the American Association of Clinical Anatomists, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, the International Traffic Medicine Association, and the American Association of Anatomists. He is an outstanding teacher and has received a variety of teaching awards including the “Golden Apple Award for Teaching Excellence” at the University of Louisville Medical School.

Workshop (during conference): "TBA - Trauma Based Anatomy, an Interesting Method of Injecting Clinical Correlations."

Our anatomy, at any point in time, is a product of genetics, age, pathology, and cumulative trauma. Building on the latter parts of my keynote lecture, I will share with the audience various cadaver-based trauma research projects, how they relate to forensic cases, and how such work may enhance your teaching of anatomy. I propose that while traditional pathology correlations are valuable, traumatic correlations are often easier for non-MD faculty to institute and easier for students, who are in the initial stage of their medical/dental training, to comprehend. If delegates wish to read background material for my workshop, I would strongly recommend reviewing the 2011 Special Issue of the journal Clinical Anatomy (volume 24, issue 3) available online at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ca.v24.3/issuetoc

 

 

David Morton

David A. Morton, Ph.D. Dr. Morton is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah School of Medicine (UofU SOM). He teaches gross anatomy, histology and neuroanatomy to medical, dental, physical therapy and occupational students. He serves as Co-Director for Foundations of Medicine as well as Skin, Muscle, Bone and Joint units in the Medical School Curriculum.
His research interests include the creation and incorporation of active learning activities as well as the use of cadavers in medical education. Dr. Morton serves on the Board of Directors for the American Association of Anatomists and is also an active member of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists and International Association of Medical School Educators.
He serves as a Fellow on the Academy of Medical Science Educators at the UofU SOM and is the recipient of the Jarcho Distinguished teaching award. Dr. Morton is the editor-in-chief for AnatomyOne (Amirsys) a comprehensive anatomy resource as well as co-author for Gray’s Dissection Guide for Human Anatomy (Elsevier), The Big Picture. Gross Anatomy textbook, The Big Picture. Histology (McGraw Hill) and A Photographic Atlas for the Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory (Morton Publishing). He also serves as a visiting professor to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, Ghana.

Workshop (during conference): "Becoming the "Riddler" - 5 steps to writing effective MCQ questions"

 Assessment is an essential component of medical education and as such has a powerful influence on student learning. Therefore, it is important to develop assessments that will challenge and stretch medical students to synthesize anatomy at higher levels of understanding. Unfortunately, many anatomy questions simply test minutia and the recall of factual information. This workshop addresses assessment in the following manner: 1. Presentation of 5 steps to writing high-quality, multiple-choice questions. 2. Application of the 5 steps in evaluating MCQ examples and discussing how each question is or is not effective and why. 3. Creation and reviewing of questions constructed by attendees. This session is aimed at attendees interested in improving assessments, creating questions to be used during flipped classroom activities and for curriculum directors overseeing assessment.
