A cadaveric oath was taken on 13th September 2019 by the first batch of MBBS students in the Department of Anatomy, GIMS, before the commencement of their dissection classes. It is an age old tradition to say the cadaveric oath at the beginning of the academic year. It is carried out to inculcate the respect among the students towards the cadavers who are their first teacher in 1st Professional MBBS. All the students took the oath in the presence of our Director Dr. (Brig.) Rakesh Gupta and the faculty of the department of Anatomy.
