Dept of Anatomy Curriculum

Curriculum

Goal
The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in Anatomy aims at providing competency based medical education of the gross and microscopic structure and development of human body to provide a basis for understanding the clinical correlation of organs or structures involved and the anatomical basis for the disease presentations.

Knowledge

At the end of the course the student should be competent in

  • Comprehending the normal disposition, clinically relevant interrelationships, functional and cross sectional anatomy of the various structures in the body.
  • Identifying the microscopic structure and correlate elementary ultra-structure of various organs and tissues and correlate the structure with the functions as a prerequisite for understanding the altered state in various disease processes.
  • Comprehending the basic structure and connections of the central nervous system to analyse the integrative and regulative functions of the organs and systems. He/She should be able to locate the site of gross lesions according to the deficits encountered.
  • Demonstrating knowledge of the basic principles and sequential development of the organs and systems, recognise the critical stages of development and the effects of common teratogens, genetic mutations and environmental hazards. He/She should be able to explain the developmental basis of the major variations and abnormalities.

Skills
At the end of the course the student should be competent in

  • Identifying and locating all the structures of the body and mark the topography of the living
    anatomy.
  • Identify the organs and tissues under the microscope.
  1. Understanding the principles of karyotyping and identify the gross congenital anomalies.
  2. Understanding principles of newer imaging techniques and interpretation of Computerised
    Tomography (CT) Scan, Sonogram etc.
  3. Understanding  clinical basis of some   common   clinical procedures i.e., intramuscular &
    intravenous injection, lumbar puncture and kidney biopsy etc.

Integration
From the integrated teaching of other basic sciences, student will be able to comprehend the regulation and integration of the functions of the organs and systems in the body and thus interpret the anatomical basis of disease process. Students 

Early Clinical Exposure (ECE)

Students are exposed to clinical setup in I MBBS. The teaching of Anatomy is done with the help of clinical cases. This helps the student to correlate between Anatomy and clinical situatuions.

SELF DIRECTED LEARNING (SDL)

Students are trained in learning by themselves where teachers act as a facilitators.
