Interview with Anna Bekesevych, MD, PhD
By Brent Davis, PhD
On February 22-24, 2023, we were honored by a visit from Dr. Anna Bekesevych of Lviv National Medical University in Ukraine. She delivered a lecture to the faculty of the School of Medicine on the topic of Anatomy Education. Dr. Bekesevych has a long-standing interest in anatomy which led to her achieving a doctorate in this field, researching the cerebellum. Currently, she teaches first- and second-year medical students. She is very aware of her students’ learning styles and provides the learning activity that will be most appropriate for each student whether drawing, or discussing, or using anatomical software.
On a personal note, her husband is an economist, and they have a 12-year-old daughter who is interested in languages. After a year of war, they are getting used to sirens and electricity shortages, but it is never easy. May God grant peace soon to this brave and beautiful land and may Dr. Bekesevych continue her excellent teaching of anatomy.
