ICBO_2018_14: Does the Foundational Model of Anatomy ontology provide a knowledgebase for learning and assessment in anatomy education?


Throughout the development of the Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA) ontology, one of the use cases has been anatomy education. In this work, we examine which types of knowledge taught to anatomy students can be supported by the FMA knowledge base. We first categorize types of anatomical knowledge, then express these patterns in the form “Given ____, state ____”. Each of the 33 patterns was evaluated for whether this type of knowledge is compatible with the modeling and scope of the FMA.
