Abstract

Changes to medical education in Australia include a proliferation of medical schools, shorter courses, shifts toward problem-based learning, and large-scale medical knowledge expansion. Students also spend less time on university campuses and more time at clinical teaching sites which are often non-specialised, regional and remote from the parent university. These changes leave little room for teaching anatomy as a pure discipline.
