Anatomy is a practical subject, best learned by gaining hands-on experience of the body. Students should spend as much time as they can examining cadaveric dissections. Histology has never been such and important part of the medical curriculum as it is today. The teaching of physiology and biochemistry increasingly revolves around the new discipline of cell biology and so a knowledge of cellular histology and ultrastructure is of paramount importance. An understanding of the causes, mechanisms and effects of disease is increasingly dependent on a knowledge of histology, ultrastructure and cell biology.
|2.Vision||Anatomy and Histology||Anatomy and Histology||1|
Teaching gross anatomy should largely depends on using human prosections, models as well as X- ray pictures and CT and MRI scans. Using these media is expected to allow the student to comprehend the details of the human anatomy in a simple clear way. For histology the teaching should make use of light microscopic and electron microscopic pictures. Many of the physiologic and pathological changes could be followed only at the level of the electron microscope.
