The practice tournaments used pictures for the Anatomy test. Will that be the same for the Regional tournament?

We mainly use models for the Macomb County competition.  It is extremely rare for us to use a picture or diagram.

Is there a way to get a copy of the notes provided during the Event Coaches Training meeting? Could they be posted as a "study guide" with the event?

The notes cannot be posted on the website because of copyright laws.   A copy of the packet is available to review in the Learning Center at Macomb Community College.

How do we correctly identify the other name for Styloid Process of the Radius & Ulna? Is it Stylus of the Radius & Ulna? Or Stylus Process of the Radius & Ulna?

The structures can be designated as either the stylus of radius (or ulna) OR the styloid process of the radius (or ulna).  Students should know both terms.

Where are the anatomy models kept in the MCC Learning Center?

The Learning Center is located within the Library, in the C Building on MCC Center Campus.


The models are kept in a room behind the front desk at the Learning Center.


Please note:

1) You must make an appointment to use study materials at the Learning Center, and models may only be used in the Learning Center.

2) The services provided by the Learning Center for this event are strictly for Macomb County residents.  You must present a valid ID.

3) The Learning center will close for renovations on May 13, and the materials will no longer be available, one week before the tournament.



How many models or diagrams will be at each station?

Typically, there are one or two models per station. We try to minimize the number of models per station because of space constraints. We try to avoid the use of diagrams when possible.

Will you provide model keys for the models in the learning center?

If the model keys are available, we will provide them. Use at your own risk. The terminology may not be exactly the same as in the rules for the event. We try to used the simplest terminology when possible. Some structures may have more than one name.

In how many boxes are the models stored?

There is no set number of boxes. We usually place one example of each model in the boxes in the Learning Center. The boxes are organized according to the organ systems. There can be more than one box per organ system. You may have to specify which models you would like to check out each time. A list of available materials will be available at the front desk of the Learning Center.

During the test, do both students have access to each station at the same time?

Yes. We may utilize tape to delineate the area for each station in the competition.

Why hasn’t a newer example test been posted on the Macomb SO website since 2013?

We do not release the Regional Anatomy test.  The example test to which you refer was written for a practice tournament, by someone other than the Macomb Regional Event Supervisor.  However, it is a good example of the type of questions and level of difficulty the students will experience.  Please note that we try to avoid the use of diagrams.

Should the participants learn about the meaning for each part in the body? Does correct spelling count too?

You do not have to know the meaning of the word. Spelling will count for the tie breaker only.
