Message from Dr. Naresh Shetty, Chief – Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center
DR. NARESH SHETTY (Chief)
Human being is a complex structure. No two persons are made the same. Each one has a individual variation and that is what makes Medicine so difficult and so interesting. It is rightly called an inexact science. But all human learning starts with Anatomy and dissection allows students to recognise people as truly unique individuals in body and in spirit, each with their own “irregularities.” Every cadaver has something new to teach and discover the art and science of the human body. In fact a cadaver needs to be considered as a body of knowledge and is the medical student’s first patient and the first encounter with the emotional burden of becoming a physician.
About the Cadaver Lab:
This is a laboratory that uses human cadavers for hands-on training, education, and development of new surgical techniques. Cadaveric laboratories provide a real life like experience where medical professionals and students, alike, can advance their understanding of human anatomy and physiology in addition to enhancing their practical skills, by exploring and working on human specimens.
State of the Art training facility :

RALC is dedicated to providing students with the real hands-on experience they need to apply what they're learning in our courses.

Live Well, Leave Well- A Donor Program:
All the cadavers are gifts — donations from people who chose to give their bodies to medical education. A unique program of ’Live Well, Leave Well' started a few years back have seen many people coming forward to donate their bodies. They have ensured with their sacrifice that learning continues. As a respect to all these donors, before the start of any program, a silent prayer is held to honour the people who donated their bodies for learning.
