The highly dynamic department of Anatomy at the Apollo Medical College thrives on blending cutting-edge technology with path-breaking research and timeless teaching principles. We aim to enrich students with a deep understanding of the human body and focus on investigation and intervention for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. We truly believe that clinical anatomy occupies the center-stage for all medical training, this is why we place immense focus on bridging the gray zone between preclinical and clinical anatomy.
The study of Anatomy includes gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy, embryology, and genetics. To make their study more enjoyable and triumphant students can consciously integrate basic and clinical anatomy right from the start to the very end where they will be identifying normal anatomical structures in plain radiographs.
The Department prides itself on facilitating many innovative teaching methods in its curriculum such as a train the trainee approach where students will solve clinical problems using anatomical knowledge. This type of pedagogical excellence helps students understand that preclinical anatomy is an integral part of bedside medicine and also helps expand their thinking capacity. This approach is indispensable for concept clarity and retention rather than rote learning.
In the end, the student shall be able to:
- Comprehend the normal disposition, clinically relevant interrelationships, functional and cross-sectional anatomy of various structures in the body.
- Identify the microscopic structure and correlate the ultrastructure of various organs with the functions as a prerequisite for understanding the altered state in various disease processes.
- Demonstrate the knowledge of the principal and sequential development of the organ system; recognize the clinical stage of development and the effects of common teratogens. The trainee must be able to explain the developmental basis of major variations and abnormalities.
The department of Anatomy is hosted by an excellent team of faculty who are proficient in providing high-level medical education to the student with an equal focus on research activities. Our faculty members are actively involved in medical services and scholarly activities, thus ascertaining themselves as an inspiration to the students.

Histopathology (or histology) involves the examination of sampled whole tissues under the microscope. This study enlightens the virtual art of recognizing the structure of cells, tissues, and understanding how this is determined by its function. All structures are directly correlated with the most important and functional correlations, allowing the students to efficiently learn the histological structures and their functional correlations effectively at the same time.

The Apollo Medical College is directed towards providing wholesome medical education to the students equipping them with comprehensive knowledge in every aspect of their selected medical specialization. As far as Anatomy is considered, the proper knowledge in the subject is not limited to just the theoretical understanding of the anatomical concepts. It also involves the practice of cadaveric dissection allowing the students to grasp the three-dimensional motion of various parts of the body in detail. With dissecting the cadaver being considered the highly crucial part in establishing and retaining the concepts of anatomy, the department has a dedicated dissection hall facilitating the students to learn and experiment with the anatomical characteristics in an effective manner under the supervision of trained faculties.

The Anatomy Department has a museum that acts as a great resource for the study of various specimens enabling the medical and Paramedical students to inculcate more knowledge on the anatomy of a human body. The museum not only includes cataloged specimens and models illustrating mostly normal human anatomy but also a number of radiographs and a variety of models and charts which can be utilized as teaching materials.
The department understands the need for an educational environment where the knowledge provided is adapted to the changing needs of the medical field. Hence, it is ensured that the museum is not limited to a static display of curiosities and it is remodeled and updated depending on the current trends and requirements.
The anatomy museum includes:

The AMC acknowledges that learning is something that is not limited to the knowledge of the teaching faculties or the curriculum designed, it is an on-going process that involves the understanding of the historical concepts that have occurred and documented, keeping up-to-date with the current happening in the field and also preparing ourselves and the community for combatting the future problems with research and innovation. To aid this learning process, the college has an extensive anatomy department library that houses about 790 books covering almost all the topics related to anatomy.
