A study done showed an increase in undergraduate students' understanding of anatomical structures after introduction to ultrasound training as it promoted students procedural skill and their confidence level on performing clirucal procedures. The techrique of drawing anatomical structures that requires extra focus of concentration. lateral thinking and knowledge transfer skills could also result in higher understanding of the subject learned Indeed, integration of surface anatomy IA a practical course has resulted in improved knowledge, understandmg and confidence level in clinical practice. Conclusion: Surface anatomy is still relevant to produce sale doctors. Hence, roovation in surface anatomy teaching is pertinent for effective learning and contribute to competent clinical students and doctors
