Anatomy, a subject requires hands-on practicum, is unprecedentedly challenged by the restriction of face-to-face teaching in light of the pandemic. The Video conferencing system (VCS), such as the CUHK's adopted Zoom platform, is a real-time network connecting remote participants from different locations for interactive communication. It is a good alternative for subjects that requires didactic lectures only but might not be a realistic option for anatomy teaching and learning.

This presentation describes 1) the challenges in modifying teaching materials that suit for online medium and 2) a teaching strategy in inviting senior peers from medicine (MBChB) and biomedical sciences programs to join the session with junior students from the biomedical engineering and pharmacy programs for discussion of the potential clinical relevance with their learning in anatomical structures.

Our experience and students' feedbacks showed that stakeholders overcome the limitation with some concerns. Compared with face-to-face teaching, the demand for teaching preparation for online is neither easy nor light but challenging at another escalated level. It requires a multiple-disciplinary effort in preparing video shooting ahead of the real-time class. On-sites challenges were encountered, including spatial examination of plantinated specimens, didactic interpretation of the anatomical structures, the discussion of clinical significance related to the structure and stability of the internet connection. Regarding this pilot study, there still have rooms for the improvements.
