DEPARTMENT OF ANATOMY

Anatomy is a branch of biology and medicine that is the consideration of the structure of living things. Human anatomy, including gross human anatomy and histology, is primarily the scientific study of the morphology of the adult human body. Here students learn gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy from anatomical models, skeletons, textbooks, diagrams, photographs, lectures and tutorials. The study of microscopic anatomy (or histology) can be aided by practical experience examining histological preparations (or slides) under a microscope; and in addition, medical students generally also learn gross anatomy with practical experience of dissection and inspection of cadavers (dead human bodies).
