Anatomy is considered as one of the most important subjects of general medical sciences and the knowledge helps a lot diagnosing and treating diseases. This course is difficult for most students and difficult to memorize. So far, various methods have been evaluated in prestigious universities around the world for easier and deeper teaching of anatomy. This paper reviews the best methods of anatomy teaching, including the use of cadaver / prosection, plastination models, the use of cross-sectional images, concept maps, clinical examination, painting, collaborative methods, the use of 3D software, film and mobile, virtual reality, augmented reality, mock and gamification. The study results showed that each method can be useful according to the facilities. For example, in cases where there is a shortage of bodies, prosection or plastination models can be used. For new generation students, using gaming methods and 3D software can be beneficial. Anatomical painting as well as conceptual mapping can be especially effective for postgraduate students.
