Abstract

  Approaches to teaching correlate with quality of learning. Knowledge of anatomy, a foundation for practice of medicine, can improve by visualization. Dissection on dwindling ‘available cadaver’ population fails to achieve this in totality. Easily available laparoscopic surgery videos can be useful as visual teaching aids. Aim of teaching anatomy is to produce competent physicians. Today’s generation is multimediasavvy. Practice of medicine is also evolving with integration of multimedia technologies. Hence multimedia tools can be incorporated in teaching and learning as well.
