PhD study: Learning and teaching anatomy in a blended learning medical curriculum
Dear students,

My name is Carole Ngoie. I am a PhD candidate from the program of Clinical Anatomy, School of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN).


You are cordially invited to consider taking part in this study that intends to investigate the relationship between the learning preferences of medical students and how anatomical concepts are taught, learned, and used in a blended learning curriculum. Anatomy is the foundation of medicine, yet students find it difficult to learn. Understanding anatomy helps turn theoretical knowledge into safer practical skills. Students learn and interact differently due to their learning styles. Students learn better when they are aware of their learning preferences and when teaching methods support these preferences. This study therefore aims to explore the relationship between medical students' learning preferences within a blended learning curriculum and the impact of anatomical teaching on learning and knowledge application in clinical practice at the UKZN.


This study has been ethically reviewed and approved by the UKZN Biomedical research Ethics Committee (approval number BREC/ 00003901/2022). This study is supervised by Dr. C.O. Rennie, UKZN, Department of Clinical Anatomy, and Co-supervised by Prof J.M. Van Wyk, UCT, Department of Clinical and Professional Practice, School of Clinical Medicine, and Dr. R. Abraham, UKZN, Department School of Clinical Medicine.

The study will involve self-completion of two questionnaires on the methods and styles for learning anatomy by medical students. Your participation is expected to take 10–15 minutes per questionnaire.

Kindly, click on the link below to access the questionnaire:


I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Carole Ngoie
