The human body is a combination of 206 bones, more than half of which are in your hands and feet. Students will need a sound knowledge of these and many other parts of the body as they venture into the clinical domain. The Anatomy Department is fully equipped to groom good doctors and health sciences personnel, who are in great demand in a fast growing world.
The anatomy sessions have a balanced approach with a combination of didactic lectures, dissection and demonstration of cadavers, micro study of individual organs and teacher-student interactions in the form of seminars and symposia. Lectures are made lively with the use of multimedia devices and students are divided into groups.
Students will find this to their advantage, as professors are able to devote more individual attention. The faculty are experienced and highly qualified, a fact that will make the coursework a breeze. Expert and friendly technicians in addition to the faculties are more than happy to help eager students in advanced research.
M.B.B.S. students are given a sound grounding in gross and microanatomy along with developmental anatomy with its inherent anomalies. They are also introduced to the exciting world of genetics. The postgraduate program in anatomy delves in-depth into the intricate organization of tissues and cells with the help of advanced apparatus.
Both the faculty and the students are encouraged to do research on advanced topics in anatomy and have the resources to do so.
The spacious, well-ventilated dissection hall has the infrastructure to accommodate 150 students. Experienced faculty help students use the modern laboratory facilities. The department provides 10 cadavers for dissection and demonstration every year, for 150 students.
Here, dissected human body parts, models of the human body and developmental details of prenatal life are exhibited. Students find these museum specimens helpful in consolidating what they learnt in the dissection hall.
The laboratory is equipped with more than a hundred microscopes and other infrastructures that help students understand the microscopic structure of human organs and the organization of tissues.
