CME/Workshops organized by the department

1. CME cum Awareness programme on "Body and Organ Donation - Live Beyond Life" on 18th September 2019.
This event has been conceived with an idea of spreading knowledge & awareness regarding the noble cause of body and organ donation. Body donation provides the medical students a medium for learning Human Anatomy - the most important foundation of medical sciences. It also enables the clinicians to hone their surgical skills for the best surgical outcomes through cadaveric skill labs while Organ donation is a boon for terminally ill patients by giving them a lease of life. The programme was inaugurated by Air Mshl Pawan Kapoor, AVSM, VSM and many senior teachers of Delhi NCR actively participated in the event. Representatives of Dadhichi Deh Dan Samiti also delivered the motivational talk to the audience to spread awareness for body donation. ORBO from AIIMS, New Delhi described the importance and procedure to donate organs for terminally ill patients. Uttar Pradesh Medical Council has credited four credit hours for this event.

2. Cadaveric Oath Ceremony
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 faculties of the department of Anatomy.

3. Poster Competition 2019
