Abstract

[Extract] To the Editor: The paucity of human anatomy teaching at Australian medical schools is well established.1 Recently, a number of 4-year graduate-entry medical schools have sought to improve anatomy knowledge among students by introducing cadaver-dissection electives2 and extracurricular anatomy courses.3 Currently, 6-year undergraduate medical programs, such as at James Cook University (JCU), incorporate more anatomy education than their graduate-entry counterparts.4 However, even 6-year programs offer less anatomy education than was provided in past eras.4
