Inter-Medical School Clinical Anatomy Workshop



Organised by Taylor’s University School of Medicine (TUSOM)

Date: 14 August 2015
Time: 8am – 1pm
Venue: Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus
Fee: RM50.00 per participant

SYNOPSIS
Teaching and learning human anatomy with clinical integration is common amongst schools in Malaysia. We differentiate ourselves by:
  • Motivating students to discuss anatomical correlations
  • Using appropriate clinical scenarios that stimulates their critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • Facilitate them to remember and apply the knowledge in clinical situations.
TUSOM is organising an Inter-Medical School Clinical Anatomy Workshop on Friday, 14 August 2015. The event aims to facilitate students from different medical schools to discuss and present anatomical correlations of selected clinical problems.
TUSOM is one of the few medical schools in Malaysia to use cadaveric dissection and demonstration during the anatomy laboratory practices in Year 1 and Year 2 of MBBS programme.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to gain:
  1. Critical thinking and problem solving skills to apply the knowledge of gross anatomy in explaining problems in clinical medicine
  2. Team work and presentation skills
