Veterinary Anatomy & Histology

1. About the Department :

The department of Anatomy was established in the very beginning i.e. in the year 1930 when Bihar Veterinary College, Patna was opened as the 4th Veterinary College of India. As the college was awarding diploma to the Graduates at the completion of three years, the subject of Anatomy was limited primarily to the Gross Anatomy of the different domestic animals viz., Ox, Horse, Dog, Pig, Sheep, Goat & fowl. Even then, this subject was taught for two consecutive Years. Later on the subject of Anatomy was taught with the emphasis on Histology and Developmental Anatomy with the conversion of diploma courses to the degree courses of four years duration since 1949. The department acquired the distinction of starting post graduates courses in early sixties. The P.G. courses were first started upto Master level there soon followed by Ph.D. courses. With the Advent of Rajendra Agriculture University in the year of 1971, the department of Anatomy to its credit has produced Six Ph.D. and seventeen M.V.sc candidates.

The department is adequately equipped with Precision instrument and highly qualified teachers. The development has more than ninety six research publications. The Department has prepared appreciable number of teaching acts such as skeletons, charts, Models, Statutes, Plaster Casts and colours transparency film to cater to needs of U.G. & P.G. students.

2. Mandate/ objectives :

  • To provide qualified human resources in the field of Veterinary Anatomy, Histology and Embryology.
  • To furnish the information on the gross Anatomical, Histomorphological and Histochemical  aspects of all domestic animals including birds, so that the knowledge is availed for its application in the clinical/ paraclinical, production and reproduction of other disciplines.
  • To furnish the knowledge about the structure and forms of various organ system to the Veterinary students.
  • To provide quality teaching them regarding the process of embryogenesis and organogenesis during the embryonic life of the individuals so that students can understand about the pathological condition caused due to faulty development.
