Department of Human Anatomy

Anatomy is the art and science which deals with structure of human body. The term anatomy is derived from a Greek word, anatome - meaning cutting up. The term dissection is a latin equivalent of the Greek anatomy. Dissection is a mere technique, whereas anatomy is a wide field of study.

Initially, Anatomy was studied mainly by dissection. But the scope of modern anatomy has become very wide because it is now studied by all possible techniques which can enlarge the boundaries of the anatomical knowledge. The main subdivisions of anatomy are

  • Cadaveric Anatomy
  • Living Anatomy
  • Embryology
  • Histology
  • Surface Anatomy
  • Radiographic Anatomy
  • Comparative Anatomy
  • Physical Anthropology
  • Applied Anatomy
  • Experimental Anatomy

The Laboratory is equipped to help in teaching and training the students to attain perfection in histology. The well-equipped dissection hall was with well aeration where students gain knowledge of regional and systemic and surface anatomy.
