This book developed originally from the need to provide a self-instru­ctional material to medical students, both undergraduate and postgrad­uate, in histology practicals. Courses in histology practicals can be conducted in many ways: with handouts and atlases, obeying instructions of tutors, viewing demonstrations of slides on closed-circuit television or even following textbooks. This 'Guide' presents a programmed inst­ructions of histology with the teacher acting as a facilitator.

Though many exhaustive and excellent textbooks of histology are avail­able to students, there is hardly any book, at least not to our knowl­edge, catering to the needs of students during histology practical sessions. In this regards, this endeavour is a new approach to the teaching and learning of histology.

This book is unique in more than one way; since it represents a joint effort, the first attempt of its kind, of the faculty of the Aga Khan University Medical College. The format of this book is unorthodox. Considering "time" as the biggest adversary of medical students today, the book contains a core text dealing mainly with principles and struc­tral patterns in histology. It  as felt this would lead to a better understanding of the organization and dynamics of the human body. A large part of factual knowledge has been presented in tabulated form.

In each chapter, we have provided a list of key words which represent essential terminology, key concepts and a minimal working vocabulary

of that topic. This is followed by a list of objectives, the purpose

of which is to encourage students to discuss amongst themselves salient aspects of the light and ultra microscopic anatomy. In the text, we have incorporated many questions, because we believe these questions should encourage the search of k~owledge beyond its pages. The chapters on the microscope and his~ological techniques have been included because of our frustrating experience with the year one students lacking basic 

knowleuge of the proper use of a microscope. At the end of this book, a number of MCQs on relevant topics have been added for self-assessment and quick revi€w.

We hope this book is reasonably clear and concise, with balanced and judiciously presented material. We would welcome helpful criticisms and comments for inclusions in future editions of this book.
