About the Course
Skeletal system is a dynamic framework with various functions such as giving the human body, its shape, making locomotion and motor functions possible, protecting viscera, facilitating respiration, producing marrow-derived cells, and playing a crucial role in the body homeostasis.
In this course of anatomical osteology, our eminent faculty have covered both the axial and appendicular skeleton thoroughly. All the 206 bones present in the body are taught region wise in great detail. Head and neck includes the skull i.e. cranium with mandible, cervical vertebrae and hyoid bone present in the neck. Similarly the regional osteology of thorax includes all the components of thoracic cage including sternum, 12 pairs of ribs and thoracic vertebrae. The bones of upper limbs and lower limbs are all taught with their distinguishing features, muscle attachments, nutrient foramen and related clinical anatomy including fractures and dislocations.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
