VELEZ-GARCIA, Juan Fernando  and  RUIZ-LOZANO, Robinson. Reflection on the Process of Learning-Teaching of Veterinary Anatomy. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.3, pp.888-892. ISSN 0717-9502.

Veterinary gross anatomy is a branch of morphology aimed at studying the normal characteristics of the animal body. The teaching-learning processes have used various resources, from a traditional teaching cadavers fixed in formalin to a complementation with multimedia materials. As a result of the continued decline of the classroom hours participation in the curricula of veterinary medicine, this article shows a number of methodologies used in both veterinary and human anatomy by various authors. Each one has advantages and disadvantages their integration however, enhances student understanding. As authors we advocate this integration without veering from the use of cadavers and current veterinary anatomical terminology as the main teaching resources in the process of teaching and learning gross anatomy.
