Budding physicians and surgeons are taught at the Bachelor’s level about various aspects such as embryology, comparative anatomy, evolutionary biology and phylogeny as these are the processes by which anatomy is generated over immediate and long time scales. Coursework is divided into microscopic and macroscopic anatomy and students are introduced to the various optical instruments used for the study of tissues of various structures. Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) is a 5.5-year programme. Coursework also involves understanding the functions of the organs and the structures of the human body.

One can pursue MD in Anatomy after finishing MBBS.

I am a 1st yr mbbs student. I want to know which are the best rated MCQ books for 1.) Anatomy 2.) Physiology 3.) Biochemistry please do reply :-)

Srijika Bhattacharyya 18th Feb, 2020
The best mcq books for neet pg are:
Anatomy- Rajesh kaushal/raviraj
Physiology- Krishna Kumar( CRISP)
Biochemistry- Rebecca james
Make sure you have read the standard books like BD Chaurasia/Vishram Singh for anatomy, GK Pal/ AK Jain for physiology and Satyanarayan/Vasudevan for biochemistry before attempting to read mcq books.
You can also read certain topics you do not understand from the standard reference books like Grey's anatomy, Guyton/Ganong and Harper/Lippincott.
I would suggest read the textbook first then read the mcq books and solve questions.
Hope this helps.
All the best

can i do msc anatomy after bsc microbiology

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 11th Feb, 2020

Ideally to study a subject in your Master's you should have studied that subject in your Bachelor's degree. But B.Sc Microbiology doesn't have Anatomy as a subject and so unfortunately you cannot study your PG in Anatomy with a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology.

can i do msc anatomy after msc microbiology?

Shareef 11th Feb, 2020

B.Sc Microbiology has subjects like Bio Informatics, Bio Statistics, Chemistry, Bio Physics, Cell Structure, Microbial Growth and reproduction, Tissue culture and Virology. It doesn't have Anatomy. M.Sc means you should study the subject in your B.Sc and you are specialising in that subject. You can pick one of the subjects that you studied in your B.Sc to study M.Sc.
