Department of Anatomy

Anatomy is the part of biological science that deals primarily with structure, function and position of the body. Anatomic knowledge is the base for the medical education. The candidate doctors must learn the normal anatomical structures. Because normal anatomical structure is closely associated with pathological structure. Our aims are train doctors or specialist of anatomy who know the development and the macroscopical structure of the human body, the relations and the functions of the organs, the dissection techniques, the principles of anatomical systems and explain the anatomical reason of the clinical problems, and be conscious that the anatomy is a developing branch and aims to improve his/herself and his/her knowledge.
