Dissection of the Human Body: Designed for Restructured Medical Curriculum

by A Krishnamurti, JP Gunasegaran

This book, Dissection of the Human Body, deals with surgery. At present, the medical curriculum provides only 650 hours for the teaching of anatomy within the first 2 terms of the first-year of the MBBS course. Hence, this dissection manual is written in such a way that the dissection of the human body can be completed in a duration of 32 weeks, keeping in mind the singular need to equip the medical student with clear anatomical concepts rather than getting lost in the intricacies of anatomical details; and also, to ensure that each student, regardless of the institution attended, will gain fundamental level of competence required for the practice of medical profession. The book is a modified version of the dissection manual entitled A New Approach to Dissection of the Human Body by R Kanagasuntheram, A Krishnamurti and P Sivanandha Singham published in 1977 by Singapore University Press. The book commences with a brief account of the tissues met with during dissection. This is followed by sections containing a six-week schedule for the upper limb, a six-week schedule for the lower limb, a seven-week schedule for the abdomen & pelvis, a three-week schedule for thorax, an eight-week schedule for the head & neck and two-week schedule for optional dissection/study on prospected specimens.
