Teaching at Anatomy Department of IMM, now Mandalay Medical University

My friend, Dr Min Nyan was on the left, near the microscopes. He had kindly sent these photos through Forensic Surgeon (Police Surgeon) Dr Ko Ko Gyi (10) (not in this picture. My RN was 9. ) Centre was Dr Than Win, now O&G Professor and Rector of our university. We all are old Peterised or from St. Peter’s High School. (Now No. 9 BEHS). I was on his left. The pic was taken in the main dissecting hall where we dissect the formalinized cadavers.

In front of the portico with the signboard of IMM. Our gang of staff, Prof U Khin Maung Sein (Phd Anatomy, Head of Department) at the middle between the males and female Demonstrators of Anatomy. I hope the three Masketeers are obvious. Daw Khin Lay Yee (now the retired Professor of Anatomy, Yangon Medical University, wife of famous Hepatologist Prof U Khin Maung Win) was on the far left. Dr Cherry Aye Aye Myint is on her right. (I heard she retired as the Assistant Registraror of IMM and now the MS of Sigaing Thidagu hospital.) On her right is the famous Sai Kham Leik’s Nwe Tin (Daw Nwe Nwe Tin. She, Than Win and I were Mandalays repated Outstanding Students or Lu Yae Chun Htutkun. ) Dr Daw Myint Myint Than is on her right to the left of Prof UKMSein.

Late Anatomy Head of Department Professor U Khin Maung Sein was one of my best teacher (Professor) and one of the best boss in my life. My marks in 2 years of Anatomy. Note:
Grade 5 = A (distinction marks)
Grade 4 = A- (good)
Grade 3 = B (pass)
Grade 2 = C (fail. Need to resit one subject only)
Grade 1 = A (failed badly. Need to resit all the subjects in that class or year of examination)

Late sayargyi was very strict with students and his staff. He used to surprise check us all the time. In the dissecting room of cadavers, Histology Practical Room or our teaching classes, he would be surprised as I was always teaching. During the non-teaching free times, I used to sit in my room, reading Anatomy books. (He don’t know that during non-office hours, I would be reading Surgery or at GP, or at market or with the family. I need to read in the Department. And as I wish to do Surgery, I took the full opportunity to learn Anatomy especially by demonstrating, identifying and teaching the students on the cadavers.) So he had given me 90+ marks (he showed me together with Dr Than Win) but he had given the two lecturers who were Ph D holders about 60 marks (U Ko Lay) and lower marks for Sayar John. Once U Ko Lay found out that, he became jealous of me and started to give troubles, up to refusing Ma Ma Kyu’s personal request to accept me for the training in OG for one year in Myanmar so that I could be accepted for MRCOG training in UK. Note Ma Ma Kyi was the Minister U Pe Thein’s wife and Ko Lay was the DGME.

    Hi, I am Chong Zi Yi, brother of Chong XianYi, my sister is the one who always go to ur clinic with my father. Very interesting posts, here’s a suggestion, why dont u post a vids of a dissection of a frog (If possible, a LIVE one). I am interested in Biology and the art of surgery.

  2. drkokogyi Says:

    Chong Zi Yi,
    TQ for the interest and comment. I am already 60 and retired. And dissection of frogs, chicken, piglets were done in A level or Biology esp Zoology studies.
    In our country, we had 10 fomalinized cadavers (human dead bodies) , enough for each small group of 10 students. they had to cut or dissect and study the human dead bodies in detail within 18 months. In Malaysia, because of lack of dead bodies, all the students have to study the Plastisized, ready made dead bodies only.

  3. Chong Zi Yi Says:
