dc.descriptionA research paper on the teaching of HIV/AIDS to medical students using "virtual, computer aided anatomy" instead of real cadavers at the Zimbabwe Medical Teaching Hospital.en
dc.description.abstractAnatomy, a word derived from the Greek words “ava” (across) and “tomin” (section), is the study of the composition of the body by cutting and separating its structures one from the other in order to examine their shapes, relations and connections to one another. Therefore, most lecturers involved in medical education will agree that dissection of human cadavers is the best method of teaching and learning anatomy. This method allows one to personally dissect the cadaver. During this process, one sees, touches and handles anatomical structures. This experience leads to a better understanding and long term remembrance of the subject. In addition to this, the observations made on several cadavers enable the student and the teacher to appreciate the presence of variations of the human structure; an experience which assists medical practitioners in physical diagnosis.en
