AbstractLearning by exploration and direct experience is regarded as the most natural, intuitive and highly effective way of gathering information, acquiring new skills and changing attitudes. To support learning of anatomy, histology and embryology we introduced a new approach to teaching in the format of Task-Oriented Practical (TOP). TOP is an active learning session which comprises a series of tasks carried out at stations by a group of students. The task itself is an open-ended instruction accomplished at the station, a physical area equipped with relevant teaching resources. In order to measure the effectiveness of the stations' design short-term retention of information test and the satisfactory surveys was performed. 139 first year medical students took part in the combined gross anatomy, histology and embryology of the urinary system practical. Preparation of collaborative, student-centred, engaging station is a demanding process which requires time to develop and master and needs to be further explored in the future.
