The goal of Undergraduate Anatomy is for student physicians to acquire the knowledge and language of anatomy necessary to practice medicine and facilitate discussion of problems and medical findings between colleagues. Patient specific gross anatomy is taught using different modalities that emphasize concepts over memorization of facts, as well as an appreciation of the association between structure and function.

The gross anatomy unit is organized around a regional approach to anatomy, in consolidation with a systemic standpoint.

The regional approach is divided into three sections:

  • Back, Shoulder Region, Upper Extremity and Thorax
  • Abdomen, Pelvis, Perineum, and Lower Extremity, and
  • Head and Neck.

The unit is conducted by lectures and full-body dissection. In teams of 7, learners dissect, discuss clinical cases, palpate, and examine prosected materials, and cross-sectional images. Students grasp anatomical language necessary to discuss problems and medical findings between colleagues. Correlations with Radiology and Surgery are an integral part of the course and provide a real-world clinical context for the anatomic material.

Clinicians will be involved both in and out of the dissection laboratory and reinforce anatomy through radiology, surgery, and clinical procedures. By the end of the course, student physicians will be empowered to analyze, synthesize, and apply clinically relevant anatomical information to the development of a clinical diagnosis essential for good patient care.

ANATOMY PG (M.D Anatomy)

Apollo’s Postgraduate Program in Anatomy prepares students for careers in research and teaching in the anatomical and life sciences, with emphasis on an integrative understanding of biological systems at levels ranging from the molecular to the organismal. The goal is to generate anatomists who will be competitive in the academic, industrial, and/or government job markets of the coming decades.

In keeping with the diverse nature of current approaches included within the realm of Anatomy, the Postgraduate Program of Anatomy transcends traditional departmental boundaries. Students in the program complete a series of core Anatomy courses and other requirements and pursue research in the anatomy laboratory.

The philosophy of the Postgraduate Program in Anatomy is to provide students with ample opportunities: to explore a broad range of topics within anatomy; to develop creative and critical thinking skills; to acquire technical expertise in the latest anatomical technologies, and to learn to become articulate communicators. Students have the flexibility to design programs that address individual strengths and weaknesses as they take advantage of these opportunities. They participate in teaching, graduate seminars, and in the departmental colloquium series.
