Reverence Thru Cadaveric Oath: The Need of the Hour
Because of the lack of communication skills among undergraduate students pursuing medicine, the doctor-patient relationship is deteriorating in today’s environment. The concept of gaining knowledge by dissection of the human body dates back to the 15th century, when barber surgeons used it to show the structure of the human body. Anatomy is one of the three core pre-clinical studies required of students pursuing a medical career in their first year. Cadaveric dissection is important for learning anatomy since it allows students to build spatial and tactile appreciation of structures that can’t be obtained through prosected specimens or computational models. Virtual dissection tables or other learning aids Because the cadaver was their first instructor, students should be instilled with moral principles and show gratitude to the cadaver for assisting them in understanding bodily architecture through dissection. Cadaveric oath recitation will aid students in building empathy with the cadaver as a “SILENT TEACHER” and, in the long run, with patients while practising medicine for humanity.
