Keeping abreast of improvements in the medical curriculum, Anatomy is now taught in a manner that makes it clinically relevant and facilitates integration with other disciplines. Sub components of the discipline include gross anatomy, embryology, histology and neuro anatomy which are covered in a manner that not only provides sufficient medical foundation but also makes them functionally relevant and of clinical significance. Year one students receive the most comprehensive exposure to Human anatomy through lectures, small group discussions and supervised practical classes that provide cadaveric material and models for the study of gross anatomy and neuro anatomy, bones for osteology, microscopic slides for histology and models for understanding embryology. Also, the museum resources together with multimedia provide opportunities for references as well as self directed learning.



            The mission of the department of Anatomy is to enquire, explore and communicate in order to deliver excellence in teaching and research.


            The department aims to be a leading esteemed centre for research and teaching across the breadth of anatomical sciences. It will undertake excellent research that is at the forefront and provide high quality teaching and learning for undergraduate students. It will actively engage with the wider community to share its expertise.
