Continuous versus step by step training for learning surgical anatomy on an open inguinal hernia model
Surg Surgical Res 5(2): 097-102.
This research has shown that the continuous group had slightly higher scores on the anatomy knowledge test than the segmented group who learned the anatomy step-by-step. Both groups of subjects answered a low number of the anatomical questions correctly, the participants (high school students) in this study may have been too inexperienced. Additional research into an online video-based course on inguinal hernia repair would be required to test the hypothesis that a step-by-step framework facilitates learning by using cognitive capacity and then optimizes the learning process.
