The Department of Anatomy and Histology is one of the oldest and a leading department for preclinical subjects to provide quality education and a need-based research program under the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. The courses of this department provide the opportunity to learn about Gross-anatomy, Histology, Embryology, Avian Anatomy, Comparative and Neuro-anatomy at the undergraduate level. The understanding of form and structure of living organisms at the gross and microscopic level are the core focuses of this department. The teaching involves lecture and practical sessions, the latter including the dissection of animals and birds, demonstration of formalin-fixed samples and studies of histological sections under the programme. In undergraduate level, total course credit is 15 (Anatomy-6, Histology and Embryology-6, Avian Anatomy-1, Comparative and Neuro-anatomy-1 and Surgical Anatomy-1) and total marks are 750. For the undergraduate student, the distribution of different courses is Gross-anatomy-I (GRA-101) and Histology and Embryology-I (HEM-101) in 1st-year 1st semester and Gross-anatomy-II (GRA-102), Histology and Embryology-II (HEM-102), and Avian anatomy (AVA-102) in 1st-year 2nd semester. Comparative and Neuro-anatomy (CAN-201) in 2nd-year 1st semester and Surgical Anatomy (SUA-302) in 3rd-year 2nd semester. This department also offers Masters and PhD in Anatomy. In higher studies, the students get opportunities to advance their knowledge in the discipline of Anatomy, Histology, Cell Biology, Molecular biology and Neuroanatomy.  In this department, we have established an excellent Anatomy museum, with the view of education and research for both students and teachers. Apart from teaching and research, faculties of this department also engaged with public and extension services and other extracurricular activities. The department is located on the ground floor of Yusuf Chowdhury Bhaban.
