Pre-Clinical Department - Anatomy

Department of Anatomy

Anatomy is the science that deals with studying the structure of the human body & the relationship of its constituent parts to each other. It includes embryology that studies the formation and development of the human embryo.

It is the gateway of medicine and without proper knowledge of anatomy, it is impossible to understand how the body organs perform their function and hence be able to detect abnormalities of the structure or function caused by diseases. Without a good knowledge of anatomy, medicine cannot be accurately and safely practiced.

It is also essential for the surgeon to know the proper anatomy of the area upon which he is operating. 

Objectives of the course

Teaching the course of human anatomy to medical students aims that the students should:

  • Comprehend the anatomical terms, use them correctly and develop a positive approach to the subject.
  • Recognize anatomical structures correctly and comprehend the topographic anatomy of the regions of the upper & lower limbs, the thorax, abdomen, pelvis, perineum & head & neck by actual dissection & museum study.
  • Understand the classification of bones, their general features, structure, functions & the mechanism of displacement of bone fragments at the common sites of fractures.
  • Understand the important joints of the body, their movements & the muscles producing these movements.
  • Be able to identify different body organs, their form, shape and their relation to each other.
  • Be able to correlate the structural design of each organ to its function.
  • Acquire information about the different facial planes in the different regions of the body & their surgical importance.
  • Understand the general plan of lymphatic drainage of the body & the regional lymph node where common malignant growth can spread.
  • Interpret the normal structural images of body organs as they appear in X-ray films & C.T. scans and demonstrate by inspection, palpation & percussion important bony land marks, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves & viscera on the living body.
  • Acquire the up to date knowledge about the formation and development of the human embryo.
  • Have a basic knowledge of the congenital abnormalities, their etiology and the mechanism of their development.
  • Be able to apply the anatomical and embryological information given with each part of the body for the interpretation of some medical and surgical problems (applied Anatomy).
  • Develop sufficient understanding of the subject to be able to pursue post-graduate studies, continue medical education and develop the habits of self-learning.
