Recognized by National Medical Commission (NMC) & Govt. of India and constituent college of Dr. MGR Educational and Research Institute




The branch of biology that deals with the study of structures of human beings is referred to as Anatomy. Dissection of cadavers forms the corner stone in learning Anatomy. The curriculum ranges from Grass Anatomy, Osteology (Study of Bones), Histology (study of tissues) to embryology and applied Anatomy. The department of Anatomy is situated in the preclinical block of medical college campus.

The department of Anatomy at Rajarajeswari Medical College and Hospital stands out in its uniqueness. The section is marked with a huge dissection hall that has good ventilation &. attached to the dissection hall is the embalming room with storage tanks for preservation of the cadavers. The cleanliness is always maintained and is under observation by our trained attenders. The students are given a combination of lectures, visual presentations and dissections to ensure that they understand every aspect of the body from head to toe thoroughly.

The department also comprises of:

1. The Histology Practical Lab which is spacious and well equipped with USB 2 digital camera. Students are individually provided with microscopes for the study of slides. Adjacent to it is the research lab where all necessary equipments are available for research purpose.

2. Further there are lecture halls, departmental library, & well furnished staff rooms. And the dissection hall comprising of bone and meat cutting machines, embalming room, storage tanks and cooling cabinets for dead bodies and dissection tables.

3. The museum is one of the highlights to the department where specimens both dry and wet are neatly arranged.

4. The Department Library consists of adequate books for the study references of the students. Add to this, two demonstration rooms are provided for Osteology classes in smaller batches of students and also to conduct tutorials and seminars.

Paper Presentation


The different subdivisions in the study of human anatomy are:
  • General Anatomy

  • Gross Anatomy

  • Embryology

  • Histology

  • Genetics

  • Radiological Anatomy

  • Human Osteology


Dissection: Total duration of 32-34 weeks Histology – 6 hours / week


Teaching hours – 4 hours / week Tutorials – 2 hours / week


  1. Comprehend the normal disposition, clinically relevant interrelationship, functional and cross sectional anatomy of various structures in the body.
  2. Identity the microscopic structure and correlate elementary ultra structure of various tissues and organs and correlate the structure with the functions as a pre-requisite for understanding the altered stale in various disease processes.
  3. Comprehend the basic structure and connections of the central nervous system to analyze the integrative and regulative functional of the organs and systems He/ She should be able to locate the site of gross lesions according to the deficits encountered
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of principles and sequential development of the organs and systems, recognize the critical stages of development and the effects of common teratogens. Genetic mutations and environmental hazards. He/She should be able to explain the developmental basis of major various abnormalities.
  5. Point out the features of various appearances of normal human body in skiagrams after routine Radiological investigations.
  6. Understand the principles of karyotyping and identify the gross congenital anomalies.
  7. Understand principles of newer imaging techniques and interpretation of CT Scans and Sonograms.
  8. Understand clinical basis of some common clinical procedures i.e. intramuscular, intravenous injections. Lumbar puncture and kidney biopsy.
  9. Understand different types of Bio medical waste, their potential risks and their management


  1. Identify and locate structures of the body and mark the topography of living anatomy.
  2. Identify the organs and tissues under microscope


From the integrated teaching of other basic sciences, radiology and surgery, the students should be able to comprehend the regulation and integration of the functions of the organs and systems in the body, thus interpret the anatomical basis of disease process.
