importance to provide effective learning opportunities to the students through active, collaborative and reflective (A-C-R) approach towards teaching for lifelong learning. This guide provides some tips based on principles of learning and cognitive psychology, to learn and retain gross anatomy. It can be useful both for the teachers and students.
