I guess ,the art of delivering medical lectures is gradually deteriorating . This is not because of lack of young brains in teaching profession .It is primarily due to onslaught of technology and multiple scattered source of knowledge . I do remember some of my physiology professors take class in the first year medical school in the early 1980s .
I wonder I could go back in time machine to hear the voice of Dr Kieth who delivered this grand lecture of anatomy of heart in the year 1918 .in the famed auditorium of Royal college of surgeons . We should profusely than the BMJ for providing the text of that lecture free to us in almost 100 years later.
By the way . . . for those who do not know , Kieth is one of the inventor of SA node the pacemaker of the heart .
