AVERSI-FERREIRA, Tales Alexandre; NASCIMENTO, Guilherme Nobre Lima do; VERA, Ivânia  y  LUCCHESE, Roselma. The Practice of Dissection as Teaching Methodology in Anatomy Applied to Medical Education. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.1, pp.265-272. ISSN 0717-9502.

In 2003, the UFG Faculty of Medicine, to revamp its educational project, reduced the hourly load of some subjects, among them those of anatomy, which in general leads to eliminate the practice of dissection. This practice is essential for the basic training of students, being then used in other sciences such as pathology. The objective of this study was to compare and link data between groups that made or did not make dissection after the anatomy course. Questionnaires were issued to 86 medical students from the UFG Faculty of Medicine, and from these, 10 made dissection and 76 did not. Analyzing the answers, it was found that both groups recognize the importance of this practice for the knowledge of the anatomy discipline and for future disciplines or their profession. It follows that dissection could help in the consolidation of post-modern paradigm in medical education since it improves the attention and learning of students.
