Anatomy Department is located in the campus of Dr. RPGMC Tanda in two separate buildings. Histology Laboratory , Museum & Lecture Theatre are established in the 2nd  floor of  Dr. B.C. Roy Para clinical Block.  The Dissection Hall, Departmental Office & Art & Photographic Section are established in the old building situated in front of the  Dr. B.C. Roy Para clinical Block.



(i) Goal

The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in Anatomy aims at providing comprehensive knowledge of the gross and microscopic structure and development of human bodey to provide a basis for understanding the clinical correlation of organs or structures involved and the anatomical basis for the disease presentations.


(II) Objectives

(A) Knowledge

At the end of the course the students shall be able to

(a) Comprehend the normal disposition, clinically relevant interrelationships, functional and cross sectional anatomy of the various structure in the body:

(b) Identify the microscopic structure and correlate elementary ultra structure of various organs and tissue and correlate the structure with the functions as a prerequisite for under standing the altered state in various disease processes.

(c) Comprehend the basic structure and connections of the central nervous system to analyse the integrative and regulative functions of the organs and system. He/ She shall be able to locate the site of gross lesions according to the deficits encountered; 

(d) Demonstrate knowledge of the basic principals and sequential development of the organs & systems , recognize the critical stages of development and the effects of common teratogens, genetic mutations and environmental basis or the major variations and abnormalities.

(B) Skills

 At the end of course the student shall be able to :

(a) Indentify and locate  all the structures of the body and mark the topography of the living anatomy;

(b) Indentify the organs and tissue under the microscope

(c) Understand the principals of karyotyping and indentify the gross congenital anomalies

(d)  Understand clinical basis of some common clinical procedures i.e. intramuscular and intravenous injection, lumbar puncture and kidney biopsy etc.

(C)  Integration

From the integrated teaching of other basic sciences, student shall be able to comprehend the regulation and integration of the functions of the organs and systems in the body and thus interput the anatomical basis of disease process.
