St. George’s University: School Of Medicine Dean Wins Award For Co-Authoring Medical Textbook
Thai students benefit from quality instruction by top-caliber professors who are considered leading authorities in their respective fields
Thailand, 16 November 2021 – St. George’s University School of Medicine Dean Dr. Marios Loukas was among a group of experts recognized by the British Medical Association (BMA) for their medical imaging textbook, “Weir & Abrahams’ Imaging Atlas of Human Anatomy.”
The textbook, which offers a “complete and three-dimensional understanding of applied human anatomy,” won in the category of Basic and Clinical Sciences and Research. Dr. Loukas was one of six co-authors who provided their expertise.
“It is an honor to receive this award by the British Medical Association,” Dr. Loukas said. “I can’t think of a better resource in which to offer my knowledge of human anatomy than medical literature used by doctors-in-training—here at SGU and around the world.”
The award-winning imaging textbook will be available to School of Medicine students, including those from Thailand, as part of a strong and professional network of resources on offer for the duration of their studies. St. George’s University has a team of 465 Basic Sciences faculty members, at the True Blue campus in Grenada, who are dedicated to the success of its students. In addition, the university has over 1,500 clinical faculty at more than 70 hospitals and health systems in the US and UK supporting students in their clinical years.
Published by Elsevier Ltd., the textbook is available on ClinicalKey Student, an online resource for students to access over 100 top medical textbooks, USMLE style practice questions, personalized study toolkits, and more. ClinicalKey is in a phased rollout for all School of Medicine students.
“Digital imaging is integral to anatomy education and throughout modern medicine,” Dr. Loukas said. “The textbook provides a solid understanding of applied human anatomy and uses the latest imaging techniques to offer a comprehensive view of the structures and relationships throughout the body—knowledge that is crucial for students who are studying to become doctors to master.”
Dr. Loukas was appointed dean of the School of Medicine in early 2021, after having spent the six previous years as the school’s dean of basic sciences. He started his tenure at SGU in 2007 as a course director and served as chair and professor of SOM’s Department of Anatomical Sciences from 2008 to 2015.
