Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia (FMUI), through Continuning Medical Education-Continuing Professional Development (CME-CPD) FMUI, collaborated with Department of Anatomy FMUI and PT. Bandung Scientific Technical Indonesia managed a public lecture on Monday, 25 March 2019, in Teaching Theater, IMERI FMUI Building, Salemba, Jakarta.
The speaker for the session was Prof. Sui Hong Jin, PhD, an anatomic expert from Dalian Medical University, China.
the public lecture was started at 09.00 AM with an opening speech from Dr. dr. Andon Hestiantoro, SpOG(K), MPH as Manager for Collaboration, Venture and Alumni Affair of FMUI. Followed by the presentations of two speakers with dr. Rahmadini, M.Biomed as the moderator.
The first presentation was from the head of Anatomy department FMUI dr. Isabella Kurnia Liem, M.Biomed, PhD, PA with the title “A Glance of the Development of Anatomical Learning Modalities”. She explained about the differences between learning anatomy through traditional ways which is using cadaver, and through modern methods which using digital technology such as AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and 3 dimensions’ table.
She described that both of the methods have positive and negative effects. Those affects
According to Dr. Isabella, both of the methods have positive and negative effects. These strengths and weaknesses of each method were analyzed by looking at cognitive abilities, skills, attitudes, accessibility and side effects for the health and safety of students and teaching staff. Furthermore, she concluded that the combination of traditional and modern methods is the best way to understand anatomy for medical students.
The lecture then continued with the presentation by Prof. Sui Hong Jin, PhD with the title “Application of Plastination in Clinical Anatomy and Popular Science”.
Through her presentation, Prof. Sui Hong Jin explained about the comparison of plasticization and non-plasticization specimen preservation. Plasticized specimens have better resistance and relatively easier care compared to preserved wet specimens which used preservative fluid. However, the manufacture of lactic specimens requires a high cost.
Prof. Sui Hong Jin, who is also the founder of the Mystery of Life Museum, shared her stories about the museum. One of them was about the existence of various plastic specimen collections which is not only human, but also various animal species.
The series of guest lectures closed with a discussion and group photo. Through this guest lecture, competent speaker, and interesting topics are expected become a platform for sharing information in teaching and learning activities. Not only that, this guest lecture was hoped to become a learning facility to increase the knowledge about anatomy learning methods, especially for the teaching staff.
