The role of a modern Anatomy department is threefold (Metcalf, 1970): 1. To teach anatomy and its sub-disciplines, gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, microscopic anatomy and embryology, to people who wish to learn it. 2. To advance the science of anatomy-the structural basis of function. 3. To train graduate students for a future role as anatomy faculty.
