Department of Veterinary Anatomy

Department of Veterinary Anatomy


The Department of Veterinary 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 domestic animals viz., Ox, Horse, Dog, Pig Sheep Goat and Fowl. Later on Histology and Developmental Anatomy were added with the conversion of courses to the degree courses of four years duration science 1949. The Department acquired the distinction of starting post graduates courses in early sixties. The PG level was first started up to Master level there soon followed by Ph.D. courses. With the advent of Rajendra Agricultural University in the year 1971, the department of anatomy has produced Six Ph.D. and seventeen M.V.Sc. Candidates to its credit.
