Research Activity

Under the supervision of the Department of Anatomy, the following courses are being taught.  Anatomy I, II, Neuroscience, Histology and Embryology I, II and Clinical Anatomy of Kidney-Molecular Anatomy (optional). In these courses particular emphasis is given on the relevance between the function of the human body and the clinical knowledge that the student acquires.
In the first semester the student is being familiarized with the human anatomy, the construction of the cell and body tissues and the General Embryology. The second semester includes the courses of Systematic Anatomy, Histology and Embryology. The third semester includes, Topographic Anatomy and Histology and Embryology of the organs and body systems. Special effort is being made to ensure that the teaching of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology of various organs is happening simultaneously. Neuroanatomy is being taught separately and a special series of laboratory exercises and tutorials supplement the course. In each semester a number of tutorials of Applied Anatomy, Histology and Embryology supplement the lectures. This is for the student to learn how to apply the anatomical knowledge in clinical practice. In laboratories of Anatomy students study fresh samples of bones, anatomical models, x-rays, slides and films related to the subject of each laboratory hour. In the laboratory of Histology students study collections, each of which includes about 100 microscopic samples from various tissues and organs.
