Our Vision

 

The Department aims to be a leading Nationally esteemed centre for teaching and research across the breadth of the discipline of Anatomy. It is providing high quality teaching and learning for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Anatomy is now taught in a manner that makes it clinically relevant and facilitates integration with other disciplines. Subcomponents of the discipline include gross anatomy, embryology and histology and which are covered in a manner that not only provides sufficient scientific foundation but also makes them functionally relevant and of clinical significance.

First year medical students receive the most comprehensive exposure to Human Anatomy through lectures, small group discussions and supervised practical classes that provide both dissected and prosected cadaveric material (for study of gross anatomy) For Histology medical students are allotted individual microscope as well as microscope slides for the study of histology.

  • There are 25 full size dissection tables with cadaver tanks to preserve embalmed cadavers and dissected parts.
  • Well ventilated dissection hall with embalming room is provided with an embalming machine.
  • Mortuary chambers are also available for stocking cadavers.
  • The histology lab is equipped with Kohler illuminated microscope for each student.
  • The museum has more than 175 specimens mounted in glass jars depicting various parts of the human body in addition to more than 100 embryology and cytogenetic models. Added facilities also include the availability of 115 charts describing neuroanatomy pathways and special senses.
  • The student histology laboratory has sufficient number of binocular microscopes, automatic tissue processor, knife sharpener and tissue stainer.
  • In addition, the department has LCD projectors, overhead projectors, embryology and neuroanatomy projection slides as teaching aids. The department is carrying out an UGC funded research project wherein some students are also trained in research methodology.
  • The Anatomy museum displays 160 dissected specimens, 75 models, 250 charts and drawings and catalogues of the specimens. The museum has 4 foetal skeletons, 25 disarticulated skeletons, 50 complete skulls and 44 sets of disarticulated skull bones. Several Animated / Stills and CD's are also available for teaching / self learning.
  • The department is equipped with Gross anatomy,Histology,Embryology,Surface anatomy and Radiological anatomy books for Reference.

Body Donor Program

The Department of Anatomy at the SMVMCH Provides a Body Donor Program for the purposes of anatomical examination and the teaching and study of anatomy.

Bodies that have been donated to the program are used in the education and training of future healthcare professionals including medical and nursing students and are also used for the advanced training of surgeons and other specialists.

Each donated body is treated with great care and respect and, on completion of our studies, is cremated

Members of the public may apply to donate their bodies through our Body Donor Program, which complies with the Human Anatomy Act.
