Abstract

The advancement of various teaching methodologies in the present era has led to progressive changes in education. It is necessary for core knowledge of anatomy to be assimilated by all students in order to practice in their future. The present study was conducted to know the effect of the overall teaching program of Anatomy on a students’ learning. The different approaches of learning anatomy were assessed based on the students’ perspective. The study questionnaire was constructed and the students of the first year M.B.B.S students. Majority of the student population were in favor of the overall teaching program followed and stressed that the objectives of the 1st year MBBS course were clear and the course was well organized. Introduction of Objective Structured Practical Examination (OSPE) in histology examination received positive response and was proved to beneficial for the students. Further the suggestions put forth by them will be considered and tried to be implemented in the curriculum thereby making the teaching-learning program successful.
