Anatomy is an integral component of medical education, providing the bedrock for understanding the structure and function of the human body. Traditionally, anatomy education has relied on cadaver dissection as the primary method of teaching. Anatomy education plays a vital role in medical school curricula and provides students with the foundational knowledge required for clinical practice. Medical education is constantly evolving, with new technologies and teaching methods being developed and integrated into curricula.
