Kolb’s Learning Style Inventory (KLSI) was used in this study. Kolb’s learning style model, based on the experiential learning theory (ELT), is used extensively throughout the world. The model includes 4 learning styles, which are divergent, assimilative, convergent and accommodative. The present study was carried out among 146 first-year medical students at Akdeniz University. Data were analyzed by using percentage, mean, one-way anova and chi-square
we concluded that learning styles affect study duration and anatomy theoretical course scores. And the present research showed that no studies have been published on the KLSI related general anatomy lesson of firstyear medical faculty students. Determining the reasons behind these results through longitudinal and qualitative studies should help educators to create better education programs.
DIV and ASM study duration should be planned in accordance with the learning styles and also most preferred anatomical sources for studying should be evaluated in accordance with their learning styles. Planning resources and time for working would be bring academic achievementDr. erenogut, PhD
