hello everyone!! sorry, sensei has been away for a while, had stuff at college. Even now im not really free but i will try my best.

so classes have started, i will teach u the basics of medicine.
first we start with the terms used in medicine.

anterior- in front of
posterior-behind
median-the midline of the body
medial-close to the median
lateral-far from the median
cranial-towards the head
caudal-towards the tail or feet
superior-above
inferior-below
proximal-close to the point of origin
distal-away from point of origin

thats a few from the list the u will always use in practice, so practice them.
All these terminologies and whole practice of medicine are applied only wen the body is considered in the anatomical postion.
this position involves u standing with ur hands away from the body and facing forward and the leg and feet together.



The body is first divided into planes
