Abstract

Introduction: The world-wide pandemic followed by forced lockdown had greatly impacted medical education. On virtual platforms it was daunting specially for the first-year medical students to conceptualize the concepts in human anatomy. The authors structured a teaching model including online lectures, demonstrations, clinical problem solving and weekly feedback sessions to execute online teaching in anatomy. The present study was a feedback survey performed to assess student’s perception towards online teaching in anatomy.

Materials and methods: A validated questionnaire was given to 250 medical students using Google

Form. The student’s response was then recorded and graphically plotted.

Results: The results of this questionnaire questionnaire-based feedback survey showed that the teaching model

including lectures, demonstrations and regular feedback for co nstant improvement in teacher’s

performance was a success as majority voted this model to be useful. However online teaching mode

cannot replace cadaveric dissection method of learning.

Conclusions: The theoretical knowledge in anatomy can be imparted using well planned teaching model and competent teachers. However online dissection and demonstration cannot replace the cadaveric dissection which the benchmark in learning anatomy.
