ResearchBoth the faculty and the postgraduate students are encouraged to do research on advanced topics in anatomy and have the resources to do so.
The anatomy sessions have a balanced approach with a combination of didactic lectures, dissection and demonstration of cadavers, micro study of individual organs and teacher-student interactions in the form of seminars and symposia. Lectures are made lively with the use of multimedia devices and students are divided into groups.
