Abstract

Anatomy is one of the important basic science subjects in the medical curriculum. The studies on problem based learning (PBL) curricula have shown that teaching/learning of basic sciences (especially anatomy) suffer. Our evaluation of a PBL curriculum, using documentary analysis method showed that embryology, histology and osteology were not covered adequately through clinical problems. We recommend a hybridized approach for teaching/learning anatomy in the PBL schools. The important topics which are not covered through health problems could be taught through lectures.
