MAA Joins Clinical Anatomy Training with 'Silent Mentor': Pioneering the Future of Medical Education

KUALA LUMPUR, September 23 – The Malaysian Anatomical Association (MAA) has been invited as trainers in a short Clinical Anatomy course organised by the Silent Mentor Program (SMP) Unit, Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya.

The course welcomed 30 participants from the Universiti Malaya medical student community and students from other institutions. Six members of the MAA committee played pivotal roles in facilitating the course.

Throughout the program, aspiring medical professionals had the unique opportunity to engage with human organs, thanks to three donors who bequeathed their bodies for educational purposes. These donors, affectionately referred to as 'silent mentors', played a central role in imparting knowledge of clinical anatomy, focusing on three anatomical regions: the neck, upper limb, and abdomen.

It is worth noting that this was the first time 'silent mentors' were employed for anatomy educational purposes at Universiti Malaya, marking a significant milestone in the institution's educational approach to anatomy studies.
