Aim of the department is to instill excellent knowledge of anatomy relevant to the dental students. To achieve that, all branches of anatomy are taught using various teaching modalities in the lecture hall. Then gross anatomy knowledge is enriched by the demonstration of dissected specimens in the dissection hall. Histology is reinforced by the demonstration of slides during practical classes.

Course Outcome

The students gain the knowledge and insight into, the functional anatomy of the normal human head and neck, functional histology and an appreciation of the genetic basis of inheritance and disease, and the embryological development of clinically important structures. So that relevant anatomical & scientific foundations are laid down for the clinical years of the BDS course.

At the end of the 1st year BDS course in Anatomical Sciences the undergraduate student is expected to:
