KSU faculties release bilingual book on anatomy, physiology

RIYADH: Two senior faculty members of the King Saud University (KSU), Mohammad Wadaan and Mohammad Ahmad Badshah, have released a bilingual book on anatomy and physiology to help students by simplifying the fundamentals in Arabic and English.
Wadaan is a professor in the Zoology Department while Badshah is an associate professor in the surgical department of the Nursing College.
The book is entitled “Basic Anatomy and Physiology” and has been designed for the two-semester anatomy and physiology courses taken by life science and applied health students, and was launched by Ibrahim Hamad Alquayid, a member of the board of trustees of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), who has also served as member of the executive council in the National Society for Human Rights. The launch took place at a colorful function here in the capital of Riyadh.
The authors have written the bilingual book after discussions with the students and staff members who are teaching this course, keeping in view their requirements. Utilizing their experiences, they have prepared this book in bilingual terminology to enhance its relevance to the students.
Speaking at the function, Badshah said that the book supports the basic teaching and learning of the various body systems like the skeletal system, muscular system, circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system, reproductive system, Urinary system and the endocrine system.
On the occasion of the launch, Wadaan said the language used in medical literature is usually complex, therefore, they decided to co-author a basic bilingual book on anatomy; a study of the components and relationships between various parts of body and physiology to help students opting for the two-semester anatomy and physiology courses.
During the launch, Alquayid was joined on the stage by the two authors, as well as Abul Hasan Siddiqi, former pro-vice chancellor of India’s Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), and prominent philanthropist and educationalist Nadeem Tarin, who collectively wished the authors great success in their academic future.
The program was moderated by Kaunain Shahidi.
