Department of Rachana Shareeram

Rachana Shareeram is the study about structure of human body in both subtle and gross level. Which is one of the prime subjects that pave a strong foundation for easy learning of all clinical subjects in coming years.


We have a very competent infrastructure with full fledged Museum, Dissection hall, Cadaver room and Department library

  1. Anatomy Museum– well furnished museum with ample number of human organ specimen, histology slides, articulated and non articulated human bones, models and charts.
  2. Dissection hall– fully equipped dissection hall provides practical training in dissection on cadaver to explore the internal structure of human body.
  3. Cadaver room – includes two tanks which can accommodate more than six cadavers at a time. The room is equipped with very easy and efficient – washing, lifting and transit facilities.
