Aims and Objectives: To improve the understanding of histology in students. To augment the students ability for drawing good histology diagrams. To enhance the performance of the students in evaluation of histology.
Material and Method: To prepare the charts rough histological diagram were drawn with H & E pencil and it is validated by the senior teachers in the department of Anatomy. The charts were displayed on the notice board. Questionnaire was distributed to all the first MBBS students, postgraduate students and teaching faculty from department of Anatomy to get the feedback.
Result and Discussion: 1) 81 % first MBBS students, 100 % PG students and 100% teachers felt that histology charts make learning more interesting. 2) 83 % first MBBS students, 87% PG students and 80% teachers felt that histology charts develops the presentation skills in the students. 3) 67 % first MBBS students, 74% PG students and 60% teachers felt that histology charts improves the thinking ability. 4) 93 % first MBBS students, 100% PG students and 80% teachers felt that the department should provide the handbook of histology diagrams from the charts to the students.
Conclusions: The histology charts must be developed by each department of Anatomy for enhancing the drawing skills of the students improves understanding the subject, thinking ability and reduces the mistakes committed by the students and less time is required to draw the diagram.
