Abstract

The paper presents a competency based instructional design model to teach gross Anatomy in an undergraduate medical course. The main objectives of the presented instructional design model is to allow space for identification of finer demarcations for expected competencies while allowing the students to possess a broader understanding of the discussed areas under each competency level. Here the traditional semester will be split into three competency levels and within each competency level the entire region expected to be discussed will be presented. However, the first competency level will discuss the given area superficially with details being introduced during second and third competency levels. The center of focus as well as teaching learning modalities will also evolve with increasing competency levels making the presented instructional design model a more dynamic than a static approach.
