Anatomy subject is considering the basic foundation of learning medicine. So it is important to understand the anatomy in depth. Some of the complicated structure cannot be illustrated in didactic lecture and therefore could not be easily understood. Such structure can be best demonstrated by making models. In this study some plastinated model were made and taught to the students along with the cadaveric specimen. After teaching, the questionnaire based on comparative between plastinated and cadaveric specimens were distributed to the students of various courses. Their feedback were collected, compared and statistically analyzed.
