“The study of the structures of the human body is referred to as human anatomy. An understanding of anatomy is essential for medical practice and other health-related professions.
‘Anatomy’ is derived from the Greek terms ‘ana’, which means ‘up’, and ‘tome’, which means ‘cutting’. Cutting up or dissecting organisms has traditionally been a part of anatomy studies.
Although imaging technology can show us a lot about how the inside of a body works, thus reducing the need for dissection, medical students still require to learn human anatomy from cadavers. This is why the Anatomy Resource Centre is important as part of their undergraduate learning,” said Dr. Intan Suhana Zulkafli, Head of Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine @unimalaya
