Medical education in cultural capital of Raigarh district of State of Chhattisgarh was initiated with administration of Late Shri Lakhiram Agrawal Memorial Government Medical College in the month of September 2013.The department of Anatomy was concurrently established in the same month following the guidelines and mandate framed by the statutory governing body of Medical Council of India for providing quality knowledge concerning all fields of Anatomy including general Anatomy, Gross Anatomy, Histology, Embryology and Genetics to 50 undergraduate students. The department occupies parts of the first floor of the preclinical block of the Medical College. Major activities of the department are centered on teaching and research. In addition, as a service to society, embalming of the deceased for transportation to distant cities is also undertaken.

  • Anatomy is a branch of medicine that invades in depth about morphological, microscopic and developmental aspects of an organ or system which makes the student have a broad vision and outlook about the future pathological aspects of the same organ or system. Keeping in mind the said outlook, the department envisages that the seed of Anatomical basis of disease is sown in the mind of present medical undergraduates to make them future medical expert, communicator, collaborator, manager, health advocate, scholar and a true medical professional having a sound background for graduate Anatomical study. The Anatomy department provides a keystone science experience by incorporating learning skill to the future medical graduates through student centered classroom, demonstration and human body dissection curriculum. The department understands that formal Anatomy literacy is of prime importance in the domain of ever expanding medical science. To make the theory and practical knowledge last for a lifetime, the department assists students to undertake projects activities on a monthly basis dealing with detailed length and breadth analysis of clinical aspects of Anatomy. The lecture and teaching sessions undertaken by the department, facilitates and encourages the learners to think, feel and do so that the four phases of learning namely experiencing, reflecting, thinking and acting can be adequately absorbed by the visual learners, auditory learners and kinesthetic learners. Within a small time frame of about one year (as framed by Medical Council of India) for knowing Anatomy syllabus, the department of Anatomy broadly highlights for the benefit of students necessary to know, good to know and nice to know areas of Anatomy by regular basis objective structured practical examination (OSPE). The Anatomy department does not forget to preach the basic principles of good teaching practices by invigilating and evaginating into the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domain of undergraduate students by building student faculty contact and cooperation, active learning and prompt feedback from students and respecting diverse talents among students.

  • Heartiest greetings and sincere warm welcome to the department of Anatomy of Late Shri Lakhiram Agrawal Memorial Government Medical College, Raigarh (CG) under Pt. Dindayal University (Formerly Ayush and Health Sciences University) Raipur (CG). I am proud to be a faculty member and HOD of a department so richly stepped into the history of medical education of Chhattisgarh state. Keeping aside the laurels received by the de-novo department, the guiding theme of my term is one of regeneration and growth. I believe that education is much more than the mere improvement in term of knowledge, skills and degrees. Through the recruitment of new highly qualified and committed faculty and active paramedical staff members we mentor our students for expansion of a strong administrative team support and growing student body. We are not only proud of our departments past achievements but also enthusiastic of its future. We are working as a team towards rejuvenation of our department not only structurally but also academically and esthetically by procurement of brand new instruments, dissections tables, embalming sets, audiovisual aids including computer assisted projectors and microscopic study instruments. My vision is to maintain the vitality of “avascular” department of Anatomy. The Department pledges to train and educate the next generation students and to meet the challenges of leadership roles in all fields of medical sciences. The website will guide you for an all round information about our faculty, curriculum as well as the subject of Anatomy. equipped with all modern gadgets like monitors, ventilators, nebulisers, defibrillators, central O2 and suction supply etc.
  • Whether you are a new, old UG student, graduate student, faculty member or simply a friend, I hope that you will come by to pay us a visit and experience firsthand excitement of the new museum of our department. I look forward to continue our department’s exciting work at the forefront, hope to serve you better and assure the world class education. I wish you all the very best in your academic and clinical career.
