The study of Anatomy is the laying foundation in Medical Science. A clear and comprehensive knowledge of fundamental medical science is based on human anatomy, as human anatomy is the science of macro/micro structure and forms of the human body. Good health is directly related to standard structures of human anatomy and its variants. Therefore without sound knowledge of human anatomy to medical undergraduates (UG), their medical knowledge, skill, and experience will be imperfect.
Therefore the main aim of our department is to train & teach the students in a way that assists them in attaining practical understanding of this subject, which forms the firm foundation for the art of healing (medicine).
Department of Anatomy was established in 2008 in Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College & Research Centre, Moradabad. Our Anatomy department is one of the best departments in the state, having all the facilities related to teaching, training, learning & research activities.The Department is enthusiastic about facilitating medical education with a well-equipped dissection hall. The teaching faculty is known for their student-friendly methods of teaching. Essential as it is for modern advanced Medical Teaching Institutions, this Anatomy Department has a highly updated Museum exhibiting various types of anatomical and embryological specimens. Apart from imparting medical education to undergraduate students of various Medical, Dental, and Para-Medical courses, the Department is also recognized by the Medical Council of India to impart education to post-graduate students who specialize in Anatomy. The UGC also recognizes the Department for conducting Ph.D. courses in the field of Anatomy.
