The course of Anatomy includes Gross Anatomy of the Body, Neuroanatomy, Embryology and Histology of the basic tissues and organs as well as aspects of health and disease.. The course is covered through lectures, tutorials, dissection and clinical exposures. Lectures are supported by transparency, slides and CD’s. The department also provides anatomical models, dissected specimens and computer assisted learning. We offer a fully integrated approach to the study of human being. The different disciplines in anatomy are taught in relation to the function with emphasis on their usefulness in their clinical years of training. The training period and the number of hours for different disciplines are strictly in accordance with the recommendations of Pakistan Medical & Dental Council. Our instructional methods focus on the use of small group activities with the goals of increasing the amount of self-directed learning and acquiring the skills for the lifelong acquisition of knowledge.

The objectives of the anatomy course:

  • To appreciate the anatomical knowledge and to correlate it with other basic subjects like Physiology and Biochemistry.
  • To have the knowledge of human surface Anatomy which includes the ability to palpate bony prominence, local arterial pulse, identify sites for intravenous injections and to locate major lymph node groups.
  • To understand the human body in three dimensions, the department has a wide collection of model, specimens and other related teaching / training aids in its well-developed museum.
  • To appreciate the relation of major structures such as viscera in the abdomen, pelvis, thorax and the organization and position of structures, nerve and vessels in the head, neck and limbs by dissection and study of dissected specimens.
  • To interpret normal anatomical contents of all regions of the body by X-ray films. The course in embryology deals with the formations, growth and differentiation of the fertilized ovum, and the normal as well as the abnormal changes that occur during the periods of human development.
