About the Course

Did you know that an adult heart measures about the size of two fists? Or that your lungs are your only organs that can float on water? Interesting, right? We present here, a course on anatomy of thorax with many more amusing facts like this, since we believe, learning should be fun.
This course deals with the anatomy of thorax with its two essential organs, namely heart and lungs in great detail with the relevant clinical anatomy, to provide a basis for understanding the clinical correlation of structures involved and the anatomical basis for the disease presentations.
The course deals with the external and internal features of the heart, its blood supply and coverings, morphological features of lungs, the differences between the right and left lungs, thoracic cage, trachea, sternal angle, pleura with its reflections, recesses and bronchopulmonary segments. The azygos system of veins, ascending aorta, arch of aorta and thoracic duct are also discussed in detail, and the vast collection of picturesque animations we have incorporated into the course, is going to be a visual treat for you.

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.
