Department of Anatomy


The department of anatomy has been an academic pillar of the Institute since its inception in 1974. The department is actively involved in teaching and research programmes of postgraduate students including M. Phil, MD, MS and Cinical Diplomas . This year we hope to add to our credit the arrival of the first batch of MBBS students of Postgraduate Institute Medical College. The faculty of the department includes senior and well-respected teachers who have brought with them a rich and varied experience of teaching in some of the premier institutions of the province.There is a dissection hall which caters to the maintenance and preservation of cadavers, which are allotted to students so that they may learn the basis of Gross Anatomy by dissecting the regions allotted to them. Likewise there is a purpose built histology laboratory equipped with 25 light microscopes and one teaching microscope with four eyepieces. Lecture halls are available and shared by other basic departments with teaching schedules prepared accordingly. The teaching staff has a professors office, associate professors office and a room shared by the demonstrators. The department of Anatomy is conducting several research projects, some of them have been mentioned below:

  • Distribution of Fetal Thalassemia Gene Mutations in Thalassemic Couples
