Department of Anatomy

The history of Anatomy Department dates back to 2008, started by our beloved Chairman Mr. C. Rajagopalan with a vision to training young aspiring students in medical field to take care of Health care system in and around Kancheepuram district. Presently the department imparts teaching and training programs in human Anatomy to MBBS and postgraduates of other departments as well.

The department has a Professor, 2 Associate professors, 4 Assistant professors and 2 Tutors supported by well trained technicians and non teaching staff. All faculty members have participated and attended National and Regional conferences and several workshops to update their knowledge and skills. The faculty members of the department have published various papers in National and International journals.

With the inception of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth, the dept. of Anatomy is approved for PhD programme. All the present senior faculty members are approved as post graduate teachers and have vast experience as research guides. The department has a well equipped research lab with Trinoccular and Digital microscope. The department motivates young under graduates to take up small research projects to inculcate an aptitude for research in them. The Anatomy Museum of SSSMC&RI is unique for its state of the art and design equipped with numerous anatomical displays. The sophisticated engineering of the museum which includes glass partition, focus lamps and air conditioning, creates an environment to make one feel empowered with the desire to gain more knowledge. Such a museum is made functional by a diverse collection of charts and models of head & neck, brain, upper limb, lower limb, thorax, abdomen, osteology, radiology, genetics and embryology. Each segment has more than thirty well preserved specimens in jars they are specifically, catalogued with required information to assist the students and visitors. The Hallmark of our Museum lies in the ease of access to students, faculty and visitors during working hours of the college and serves its purpose as an Ideal museum.
