Keywords:Pre & Post-presentation Scores, Visual
Objective: To determine the results of visual live anatomical demonstrations among medical students by Surgeons. Study Design: Prospective study. Setting: Department of Anatomy, Liaquat Medical and Dental College, Darul Sehat Hospital. Period: Period of 3 years on the students of Batch 2017, 2018 and 2019. Material & Methods: Total 300 students of first year medical students (MBBS) with full attendance in class over the year were included in study. The mode of presentations was theoretical, video and power-point presentations and through live surgeries. Exclusion criteria students with absenteeism in classes.

The mean age of students was 19.4 ±0.57 years in every year students. The students were assessed in their term exams and pre-prof exams and showed significant difference in pre-presentation and post-presentation scores. Another group scores with live surgical demonstrations compared those without live visual surgical demonstrations 75.89± 3.9 vs 74.7± 4.6 in year 2017, 79.46 ± 4.9 vs 74.8 ±4.3in year 2018) and 84.8± 3.4 vs 76.41± 4.3 in year 2019 students showed statistical significant difference p value<0.000. Conclusion: The teaching of anatomy by surgeons has markedly improved performance and live visual demonstrations showed increase in interest of medical students.
