Suresh R. Rao*, Gangadhar Swamy and Laya Rose Thomas

ABSTRACT

Background: The teaching of anatomy through the cadaver dissection is matter-of-fact as the vital stand for of medical courses. There are mounting concerns on the disapproving consequences of cadaver dissection on medical students, leading to suggestions on use of option technological advancements to cadaver dissection. However, literature on interns perceptions on cadaver dissection and their opinions on computer base anatomy teaching is inadequate We provided a structured questionnaire with 15 items with Likert-type questions ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree to all the interns who were exposed for both cadaveric and computer assisted teaching anatomy at Subbaiah Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Center. Methods: Using a set of questions, a total of one hundred and twenty six fresh interns opinion were assessed towards cadaveric dissection v/s computer assisted anatomy teaching. The questionnaire was given to the interns just on first week of their beginning of internship. Results: Majority of the interns considered dissection as the best tool to study anatomy (82.77%) compared to computer assisted anatomy teaching (17.23%). About 17% of the cohort indicated that both dissection and computer assisted teaching was useful to understand the depth of anatomy knowledge. Conclusions: The current study found that cadaveric dissection is a very important teaching tool to study anatomy, V/S computerassisted program. Cadaveric dissection also imparts to the student's basic surgical skills.
