Abstract

'Clinical Anatomy and Anatomical Skills' is a newly introduced component of the anatomical teaching of medical undergraduates at Sultan Qaboos University. It comes in the final semester of the anatomy course at the end of the BSc (Health Sciences) programme. It aims to refocus, vertically integrate and revise the subject using problem solving plus testing of a variety of clinically relevant skills recorded in a log-book. This gives the appropriate orientation as the student prepares to commence clinical studies in the MD programme. The organization, structure and assessment of the course are explained. The purpose of this report is to re-emphasize the importance of correlating knowledge of basic anatomy and anatomical skills in solving clinical problems. It is hoped that this course will be of interest to other anatomists involved in the training of medical students.
