Overview of Department:
Department of Anatomy was established in the year 1998, with a goal to contribute to the vision and mission of the Mamata medical college, in the areas of education, research and service and with an objective to train undergraduate and post graduate students in the fields of gross anatomy, osteology, microscopic anatomy, developmental anatomy, surface anatomy, neuroanatomy, radiological anatomy and also to conduct conferences, workshops and continuing medical education (CME) programs for an updated knowledge on recent advances in human anatomy, for the benefit of students and faculty as well.
The Faculty, Infrastructure and Equipment meet all the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching & learning and are in accordance with M.C.I and K.N.R.U.H.S Regulations.

TEACHING & LEARNING RESOURCES:
Departmental library is provided with more than 200 books and two desktops with an internet facility.
Adequate numbers of cadavers are available for undergraduate and post graduate teaching and for research activities.
OHP & LCD projector, models & charts for gross, microscopic and developmental anatomy teaching.
Radiographs: Since Imaging techniques have become increasingly important in diagnosis and treatment, students are introduced to Radiological Anatomy during the course. The X-ray library has meticulously prepared sets of important radiographs, CT scans and MRI films which are demonstrated and discussed with the students.
Museum: The Anatomy museum has wide range of dry and wet specimens prepared over the years under the guidance of successive departmental heads. Specimens include gross anatomy, neuroanatomy & embryology, X-ray lobbies with radiographs, genetic charts, skeletons and individual bones. Specimens are displayed system wise in the Museum. Catalogues are placed for quick reference of the specimens.
Bone bank: study of the bones in a region lays down a basic outline of skeletal framework for the further study of the region. Bones taken out of departmental burial ground are cautiously prepared and maintained in the bone bank. The Bone bank is used for teaching osteology purposes and also issued to students for study in the department.
Dissection Hall – is provided with
- Two – Body Injectors for embalming procedures,
- Four – Cadaver Storage Tanks to store up to 50 cadavers,
- A Cold Storage (mortuary chamber) facility to preserve 4 dead bodies at a time,
- A Power saw and a Meat Cutting machine for sectioning the bones & soft tissues.
- Dissection hall also has sufficient stretchers, stools, dissection instruments and lockers for students’ utilization and a cordless audio system to communicate to the students.
Histology Lab: is provided with
- Binocular microscope, fitted with a HD camera and LCD projector for demonstration of regular Undergraduate and post graduate histology practical classes.
- Lab is well equipped with 2- Rotary microtomes, one incubator, hot water bath, refrigerator, staining materials and sufficient slide cabinets for preparation and staining of histology slides. H&E and special staining slides are prepared for both UG and PG teaching.
- More than 90 compound microscopes and five dissecting microscopes are available for individual student demonstrations.
