Anatomy Course Descriptions

COURSE CONTENT:

Human Anatomy is a single comprehensive course with various branches such as: – Gross Anatomy, Developmental Anatomy (Embryology), Cytology, Histology, Histochemistry, Genetics, Neuroanatomy etc. These do not form separate courses, hence they are taught simultaneously in an integrated manner theoretically and practically using the course system approach. Relevant aspects from other subjects like Physiology, Biochemistry etc. will also be taught. All these will be integrated as much as possible to give a composite comprehensive end result that is a B.Sc. Degree in Human Anatomy. The degree may be awarded with honors or a pass degree.
