Neverthe-less, it has not been implemented during practical anatomy learning that challenges the spatial per-ception of the learned material in contrast to other disciplines. This study aims to present a novel in-tervention in using practical-based team-based learning (PTBL) in anatomy and its impact as a tool for providing immediate feedback. It also de-termines students’ perceptions of the PTBL and the effect of the given feedback on anatomy learn-ing. The students were subjected to a formative objective structured practical examination (OSPE) in two successive formats: individual readiness assurance test (iRAT) and team readiness assur-ance test (tRAT). In the iRAT, individual students rotated around the practical stations in the form of a steeplechase examination. For the subsequent tRAT, groups of 5 students rotated around the same practical stations. The session was conclud-ed by discussing the practical stations with the tu-tor and immediate feedback about the students’ performance was provided along with an explana-tion of the reasoning behind judgments and practi-cal assessment criteria. Students’ perception(N=90) was measured through a self-administered questionnaire and a comparison of test scores. There was a significant rise in the average final summative OSPE scores of the students (p-value=0.029) comparing their results to the previ-ous semester in which PTBL was not implement-ed, concluding that PTBL is a valuable pedagogi-cal instrument that can be employed as an effec-tive method for providing immediate feedback dur-ing anatomy education.
