Department of Anatomy

Dr. Suresh
Professor and HOD of Anatomy

1. HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT
The broad goal of the anatomy curriculum is to provide a comprehensive, scientific knowledge of the structure and development of the human body in order to understand the anatomical basis of disease presentations and patient management.  

2. VISION
Imparting physiology knowledge to lay a strong foundation for learning medicine and quality medical research.

3. MISSION
Understanding physiological mechanisms to carry out evidence based innovative teaching and quality scientific research thereby contributing to human welfare.

4. OBJECTIVES

A. Knowledge
At the end of the course student should be able to:
1. Explain the gross structure, normal disposition and integrated functions of organ systems in order to understand the anatomical basis of      common disease presentations and clinical procedures.
2. Describe the microscopic structure of various organs and correlate their structure with functions, in order to understand their altered state in    various disease processes.
        3. Describe the basic principles behind the sequential development of organs systems as a prerequisite to explaining the developmental basis   of common variations and congenital anomalies.
       4. Describe the normal structure and functions of chromosomes and genes so as to understand the genetic basis of common genetic abnormalities.

B. Skills
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
1. Demonstrate the surface marking of clinically important structures in the cadaver and correlate it with living anatomy.
2. Locate and identify tissues and cells under the light microscope.
3. Identify important structures visualized by imaging techniques, specifically radiographs, computerized tomography (CT) scans, MRI and ultrasonography.
4. Demonstrate the various movements at the important joints in the human body.
5. Accurately palpate the pulsations of arteries at the most appropriate sites.
 
C. Attitude and communication skills
 At the end of the course the student should be able to:
1. Show due respect in handling human body parts and cadavers during dissection.
2. Communicate effectively with peers and teachers in small group teachinglearning activities.
3. Demonstrate the ability to work effectively with peers in a team.
4. Demonstrate professional attributes of punctuality, accountability and respect for teachers and peers.
5. Appreciate the issues of equity and social accountability while undergoing early clinical exposure.
