The department teaches various disciplines of Anatomy namely Gross Anatomy, Embryology, Neuro Anatomy, Histology, Radiological Anatomy and Living Anatomy providing special emphasis on general, applied and functional aspects. It comprises of dedicated, caring and well-experienced faculty members. The department has well-established and spacious dissection hall, histology lab and museum. Dissection hall is well ventilated, large with good lighting system. There are 6 cadavers with sufficient dissection instruments and also have 3 sets of fresh viscera. Museum is equipped with models and charts of gross anatomy, embryology and histology with specimen jar and preserved viscera which help to get clear concepts of complex human anatomy to students.
