Abstract

This study focuses on a subset of medical students who participated in an anatomy dissection program and undertook an
additional self-directed learning (SDL) project investigating incidental findings of cadaveric pathology. The value of SDL
activity is explored as a means of enhancing medical student education, particularly its student perceived value in preparing
and developing them as future medical educators. It was assessed whether the project advanced student interest in medical
education by analyzing their motivations for participation. The results of the study highlight the potential of SDL as an
experiential learning opportunity for medical students and the role of anatomic pathology in connecting multiple domains
of medical education.
