About the Course
Surface anatomy is a descriptive science. It is also known as superficial anatomy as it occurs on and projects to the external surface of the body. Knowledge of surface anatomy is important for performing many diagnostic and therapeutic clinical procedures.
In this course each structure present in the body is located with relevance to the skin present on the external surface of the body. It is essential to know the topographical knowledge of the internal organs in relation to the surface of the body; it is an essential prerequisite for under vision surgical procedures as well as blind procedures. These are well explained in our course, enabling the medical personnel to efficiently perform the procedures.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
