Human being is a unique creation of God. The human body and brain is a supercomputer made by God which is studied since ancient time with the help of available research modalities of the given time. Yet it is not completely understood. Medical progress with the recent modalities of advanced diagnostic and therapeautic procedures has new frontiers opening even now. For all this progress, a proper understanding of human body at structural ,functional and microscopic level is essential and hence it forms basis of medical education. Anatomy elucidates these aspects and forms the foundation stone of medical course. A proper knowledge of human body is essential for Surgery, Medicine, Gynecology and Obstetrics.
The warm, pleasing and encouraging atmosphere of the Anatomy Department has a long lasting impact on students and hence it has unique place in the minds of present and past students.
The Anatomy department of L.T.M.Medical College was started on 18th November 1964 under the able professorship of the late Dr. V.G. Kale. The first batch of 60 students was admitted on 20th Nov. 1964. The staff at that time consisted of one Professor and six part-time demonstrators only. For short periods, Dr. Teggihalli and Dr. Acharya worked as Asstt. Professors.
The department of Anatomy, at our Institution conducts workshops in collaboration with ENTSurgeons, General Surgeons, Orthopedic Surgeons and Neurosurgeons who wish to update their knowledge of Anatomy through hands-on dissections and prosections.
