The 2019 Educational Innovation / Educational Research Award recipients are Peter J. Haar, M.D., Ph.D., Marvin Alexander (Alex) Meredith, Ph.D., Gross Anatomy Teaching Faculty, VCU Radiology Residency Program, and VCU CT Technologists. The Educational Innovation / Educational Research Award recognizes significant educational innovation or educational research. Dr. Haar, Assistant Professor of Radiology, has collaborated with colleague Alex Meredith, Ph.D., the Gross Anatomy teaching faculty, radiology residents and CT technologists over the past six years to create an active learning experience for over 1300 medical students. The collaborative project allows students to study cross-sectional images of their own and other cadavers in the anatomy lab and, to date, medical students have learned from 195 cadavers. The image collection from this project creates a growing educational resource to educate medical students in the future.
