AbstractBackground: Anatomy forms the core of the Medical Subjects. It is said that Anatomy forms the heart of every subject in Medical Education. It’s mandatory for the first year MBBS to study Human Anatomy. Anatomy of the eye is also dealt as a part of curriculum. Students who take fifty percent are eligible to pass on to second year where they are taught other three para-medical sciences subject and if they clear this they will land in phase-III when the Ophthalmology will be taught to them. But how much Anatomy of the eye do they actually remember is the question that we face. So this study puts in a sincere effort to find the answers and also discusses of possibilities of measures that can be taken to ensure good education.
Aims and Objectives: To study and understand the orientation of students towards anatomy of eye in 3rd year MBBS.
Materials and Methods: This study was done in the students who entered third MBBS. One hundred twenty students participated in the study. They were divided into two groups and the study was conducted.
Results: Anatomy knowledge of eye was not retained which reflected very poorly in the pre-test scores and it was found that teaching Ophthalmology was much better after the reinforcement class of Anatomy which reflected in the second scores.
Conclusion: Anatomy and other pre and para medical subjects have to be taught in tandem with clinical subjects or at least a revision is needed for effective understanding of the clinical subjects.
