The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in Anatomy aims at providing comprehensive knowledge of the gross and microscopic structure and development of human body to provide a basis for understanding the clinical correlation of organs or structures involved and the anatomical basis for the disease presentations.

Programme Objectives:
   (A)     Knowledge: At the end of the course the student should:

a. Be able to comprehend the normal disposition, inter-relationships,  functional and applied anatomy of the various structures in the body including cross–sectional anatomy.

 b. Be able to identify the microscopic structure of various organs and correlate the structure with the functions as a prerequisite for understanding the altered state in various disease processes

 c. Be able to comprehend the basic structure and connections of the central nervous system to analyze the integrative and regulative functions of the organs & systems and he/she should be able to locate the site of gross lesions according to the deficits encountered.

 d. Know the basic principles and sequential development of the organs and systems, recognize the critical stages of development and the effects of common teratogens, genetic mutations and environmental hazards. He/She should be able to explain the developmental basis of variations and congenital anomalies.

 e. Understand the anatomical basis of some common clinical procedures i.e., intramuscular and intravenous injection, lumbar puncture, liver, kidney and bone marrow biopsy, pleural, pericardial and peritoneal paracentesis

 f. Be able to comprehend the basic principles of different diagnostic procedures in radiology, normal plain and special X-rays of whole body and newer imaging techniques

(B) Skills: At the end of the course the student should be able to:

a. Identify all the major structures, organs, viscera of the body and mark the topography of important organs.

 b. Identify the tissues and organs under the light microscope.

 c. Identify normal anatomical structures, organs and viscera in radiographs, Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan, MRI etc. and correlate with the cross sections of the body.

 d. Locate ideal sites of intramuscular and intravenous injection, lumbar puncture, bone marrow, kidney and liver biopsy, pleural, pericardial & peritoneal tapping.

 e. Localise important pulsation and the structures against which pressure can be applied in case of bleeding from a particular artery.

 f. Demonstrate muscle testing and movements at joints.

 g. Locate the site for emergency tracheostomy

 h. Interpret common genetic abnormalities in karyotypes.

(C) INTEGRATION: From the integrated teaching of other basic sciences, student should be able to comprehend the regulation and integration of the functions of the organs and systems in the body and thus interpret the anatomical basis of disease process.

 (D) Scope of training: Basic fundamentals of human gross, microscopic, developmental and radiological anatomy are covered in this course. Special emphasis is laid on its correlation with functional and applied aspects.

 Dissection of cadaver is done by a group of students under the supervision of teacher so that they get accustomed to the structure of the human body .The dissection is preceeded by lectures/ demonstrations and followed by tutorial and seminars on selected topics by the students.

 Histology:A lecture is followed by practical .The students are shown demonstration microscopic slides and provided individually with slides to study under the light microscope. They maintain a workbook, which is checked by the teachers.

Embryology: Lectures and demonstration of models at different developmental stages are taken.

Self-learning is encouraged. The students’ progress is evaluated at regular intervals and internal assessment is calculated separately for theory and practicals.


The Department also actively involved in

·         Acceptance of Body Donation from public, the cadavers are preserved and utilized for research and academic purposes

·         Creating awareness of Voluntary Body donation .
