Academic work

For teaching human anatomy, a unified syllabus was created that has taken into account many-year research and pedagogical experience of the department - anatomical school with 205-year history. The training process uses methods of teaching anatomy that were established by famous teachers - academician V.P. Vorobyov and professor Sinelnikov R.D. Educational and scientific achievements are effectively used with new works and requirements for medical education. Since 1992 the department has a computer training center and computerized classrooms, which aim to increase the effectiveness of theoretical training of the students in connection with the introduction by Ministry of Health of Ukraine license exams "Step-1", "Step-2" and "Step-3." The programs and bank of computer tests and tasks allow using the computers in the teaching process and for monitoring students’ knowledge. In recent years, the department has prepared and published in Ukrainian language manuals "Osteology", "Arthrology", "Myology" and "Splanchnology" with anatomists of other medical universities according to the Bolonskiy process, as well as a series of teaching materials.


The staff of department carries out research on morphofunctional features of endocrine, vascular and nervous systems under normal conditions and under the influence of some factors. This work consists of the following sections: "Macromicroscopic anatomy of the endocrine glands", "Macromicroscopic anatomy of the nervous system", “Macromicroscopic anatomy of the vascular system", "Influence of some environmental factors on human organs and systems (hyper-and hypokinesia, X-ray and laser irradiation)".


Scientific activity is related to the work of many departments, morphological and clinical laboratories of Kharkov and other cities of Ukraine and covers the problems of studying human endocrine and nervous systems under normal conditions and under the influence of some environmental factors. The Department actively participates in international conferences, symposia and congresses in Ukraine and abroad.

Department of Human Anatomy has had close scientific connections with the departments of anatomy of other universities in Ukraine, particularly with the department of anatomy of Kiev, Lugansk, Poltava, Crimean medical universities.
