Anatomy Mentoring is a WSMS Academic Program - a peer-peer anatomy teaching initiative run for preclinical students, by students in the years above.

When: For first years, it’s on during the lunch break every Friday, in academic weeks of the second semester of the year. For second years, it’s on during the lunch break every Thursday in academic weeks of the first semester of the year. Sessions are subject to SoM availability to open the anatomy lab and timetable adjustments

Where: Anatomy Labs, Level 2, Building 24, Western Sydney University Campbelltown Campus.

Aims: Anatomy is a fundamental subject in medicine, and one which is extremely important for students to approach with multidimensional and interactive learning. To supplement the official anatomy curriculum and teaching by the SoM faculty, this program runs during the open lab hours, providing extra opportunities for students to clarify questions, discuss anatomy study techniques, and work in small or individual groups with mentors available for assistance. The program is also expanding beyond the standard lab sessions with mentors creating extra self-assessment content, and running practice spot-test exams to quiz students if requested.
