I read your comments about the anatomy class at your medical school. I taught Gross Anatomy to dental and medical students in Houston from 1975 to 1999 and experienced the shrinkage of time in dissection. I agree that 8 weeks is not enough time to properly dissect a cadaver. There is another problem. The number of classically trained anatomists continues to shrink. More anatomy is taught by clinicians. I think is contributing to a shrinking knowledge base. The only important anatomy is that related to the clinical experience of the professor. There is less chance for the student to learn by self-discovery. How many times did we hear a student complain when dissecting that it was “nothing like the book/atlas”. We had the time then to convince the student that it is almost always like the book, but they have to be able to recognize variation and anomolies. Isn’t that what a clinician has to do almost every day? Today, everything is like the book, as students virtually study dissections. It is tragic. Thank you for an interesting article.

Depression and problem drinking often co-occur.
What happens when you ask your son if he thinks he has a problem? Or you explain the problems he may have taking care of every day responsibilities? When he is able to appreciate he needs help then both you and he can look for help. But the process starts with engaging him in the effort.
I wish you well, drlloyd
