Anatomy, the scientific exploration of the structural intricacies of living organisms, encompasses the study of systems, organs, and tissues. This discipline is categorized into gross (Macroscopic) anatomy, microscopic anatomy (Histology), and developmental anatomy (Embryology). The inception of the Anatomy department traces back to its roots as an integral part of the Shri Siddhi Vinayak Medical College, guided by the visionary principle of "Striving for Excellence in Anatomy." At the heart of our mission is a commitment to achieving and sustaining excellence in teaching anatomical disciplines to students in various health-related fields, complemented by a dedication to high-quality research. The Anatomy department stands as a beacon for advancing knowledge and fostering a profound understanding of the intricacies that define life's structural foundation.
