Introduction

Anatomy lays foundation of Medical science. The clear and comprehensive knowledge of entire medical science is based on human anatomy as human anatomy is 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 under graduates, their medical knowledge, skill and experience will be imperfect. Therefore the main aim of our department is to train & teach the students in such a way so that they practically apply 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.
