Medical Schools: Past, Present and Future Perspectives opens with a focus on the study of anatomy, the foundation of any medical education. Advances in technology involving radiological imaging, touch-based computer programs, and virtual anatomy laboratories have been adopted to provide students with large amounts of less costly, more widely accessible and more rapidly retrievable anatomical data. Following this, the authors discuss medical education in India from its beginnings in informal schools to today, where institutes of medical sciences are being set up in different parts of the country without the necessary preparatory work. A comprehensive framework for institutions aiming to improve academic support for struggling students is provided. Medical school is known to be academically demanding and resource intensive, and some students are at higher risk for struggling based on their background, as well as educational or demographic factors. The closing study explores cinemeducation, an approach that uses film and TV as complementary tools to illustrate concepts and stimulate discussion about humanistic perspectives of medicine. Many health sciences students watch TV medical dramas and films about medical issues, and they remember the portrayal of medical professionals and their relationships with patients and one another, as well as the ethical dilemmas these characters face in their work.
