Each generation of medical students has distinctive attributes that set them apart from previous cohorts. Understanding this generational diversity is paramount for faculty as they search for adequate instructional approaches to mesh with students’ learning behaviors. Today’s new medical students belong to Generation Z, also known as Centennial generation. They are those born around the early 2000s at the same time as the explosive world-wide spread of mobile devices and social media. The Generation Z’s medical students have diverse approaches to dealing with human anatomy and so they have different learning experiences resulting in differences in the kind and amount of their grasp of human anatomy. In those circumstances, it should be no surprise that a combination of methods for learning human anatomy gives the best results.
