Abstract
With the increase of distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a need to provide effective medical education remotely. Anatomy education is confronted with unique obstacles due to the complex spatial arrangements that must be mastered to achieve effective understanding. Cultural competency also represents a significant obstacle for achieving academic success when presented to ethnically diverse student populations. The objective of this study was to develop online, case-based anatomy learning modules and assess student perceptions of their educational effectiveness. To achieve this objective, MRI scans of selected cadaveric cases were subjected to a workflow that enabled the development and delivery of online, extended reality (XR) case presentations. It was hypothesized that students will positively perceive online, case-based anatomy presentations, which will enhance learning experiences and encourage medical student exploration and engagement when delivered cross culturally. This hypothesis was tested through a survey, consisting of six questions, directed at assessing student opinion of online, case-based anatomy learning by cross-cultural cohorts represented by American and Turkish medical students.
