Department Of Anatomy
Vision: To establish the department of excellence in knowledge and research driven by innovative methods of teaching and learning by honing the skills of students and teachers in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains by using clinical applications and use of artificial intelligence methodologies.
We as a team hope that the future will see the department as a highly versatile provider of a comprehensive knowledge of human body which will be clinically driven, evidence based and applicable in hospital settings.
We also aim to setup an Artificial Intelligence-based skill lab for better understanding of concepts for undergraduate and postgraduates across the various streams of medicine.
- Airconditioned well-equipped Dissection Hall
- Histology laboratory equipped with 55 binocular student microscopes, and one trinocular microscope fitted with microscopic camera, computer system and LED television.
- Museum with Embryology model section, Radiology section, Bone section, Artificial Intelligence skill lab section and student poster/model display section.
- Cadaver storage laboratory and embalming facility.
- Well equipped functioning histology preparation lab.

Lab Facilities :
Anthropometry laboratory , Department of Anatomy,was inaugurated on 18th April 2023 at the AIIMS, Rajkot by the Institutional Head and Executive Director, Prof. Dr(Col. ) C.D.S. Katoch.
Anthropometric measurements are non-invasive quantitative measurements of the body. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anthropometry provides a valuable assessment of nutritional status in children and adults. Body mass composition and various nutritional indexes e.g. BMI, Skin fold thickness, Head circumference, mid arm circumference calculated on the base of measurement will be taken at the anthropometry laboratory with the latest and conventional equipment.
The anthropometry will be helpful in diagnosis of prevalent nutritional problems of children like undernutrition, obesity and growth retardation. In adults, body measurements can help to assess health and dietary status and future disease risk. Anthropometry-driven fitness programs in athletes have been shown to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and strength. Anthropometric measurements are also used to assess nutritional status in pregnant women and to assess patients with obesity.
The lab. will also play a pivotal role in Forensic Medicine for determining gender, age etc of skeletal remains and aid in Police investigations.
To maintain the health & nutritional status of children, adults and elderly anthropometric evaluations will be conducted in camps organised by the Department of Community Medicine in nearby villages.
