  • OUR VISION
    To produce graduates of Human Anatomy who can apply their knowledge towards discerning relevant solutions for the numerous challenges affecting humans from an anatomical perspective.

    OUR MISSION
    To unlock the potentials in the study of human Anatomy as well as the dynamic nature of its applications, which hitherto, appears to have been restricted to structural descriptions.

    PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES
    The Bachelor degree programme in Human Anatomy is designed to produce functional graduates that are employable either by government, private establishments or self employed. We have taken into consideration, the pressing need to refocus the curricular in other to meet with the needs of our immediate environment as well as the need to check the intractable problem of unemployment, poverty, and brain drain. The programme is designed to attract a lot of research opportunities for the students. Thus, the students shall be provided with adequate and intensive training in Cell and Molecular Biology, Physiology, Biochemistry, and other relevant courses in the Natural Sciences. Specifically, the Human Anatomy courses provide the undergraduate students with the basic knowledge of several sub-disciplines of Anatomy, including, Museum and Mortuary Science, Genetics and Teratology, Anthropometry, Comparative Anatomy, Basic Histopathology, Radiological Anatomy, Anatomical and Histological Techniques. Core courses in other areas of biomedical sciences were included to ensure a broad area of knowledge upon which the students can build a research career.
    In the bid to achieve these noble objectives, we have laid down standards via the incorporation and subsequent review of mechanisms that will stand the test of time.

    WHAT OUR GRADUATES CAN DO
    Graduates in anatomy can pursue careers in biomedical research; Forensic Anthropology;Embalming and Mortuary Sciences; and in Histopathology laboratories as Pathology Assistants. Some of our graduates can also progress to become Anatomy lecturers, embryologist (Reproductive Health) and researchers in the field of Anatomy. Our graduates with their knowledge of modern embalming techniques can also run a commercial mortuary. Graduates can also choose to enter a degree in medicine or dentistry because the skills they have acquired in anatomy will always stand them in good stead, particularly with regards to surgery, radiology and orthopedics.


    REGISTRATION IN THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY
    All registered students of the university are entitled to use the campus main library, for effective utilization of the services provided by the library; every student must register with the library department. Students may borrow most books for a period of up to two weeks, although some books are reserved and may therefore not be taken out of the library. If books are not returned to the library when due, fines are charged for each extra day that the borrower holds the book.
    There is a small departmental resource room located within the confines of the department. Information on this can be obtained from the Administrative officer in the general office.

    ACADEMIC ADVISER
    You will be assigned to a lecturer, who will be your academic adviser for the year. You have to go to him/her for advice on all academic matters and any other matter that may affect your academic work. You should feel free to discuss your personal problems with your adviser that may affect your schoolwork. Your discussions on personal problems with your adviser are strictly confidential. He/she will try to get you some help.

    COURSES OFFERED
    The course in Human Anatomy is a single comprehensive course with various branches such as Gross Anatomy, Embryology, Cytology, Histology, Genetics, etc. Relevant aspects from other disciplines like physiology and biochemistry are also taught and an attempt will be made to integrate these as far as possible.
    The department of anatomy services the following degree programmes:
    a. B.Sc. (Hons) - Anatomy
    b. B.Sc. (Hons) - Biochemistry
    c. B.Sc. (Hons) - Physiology
  • Entry qualification for the B.Sc. course in Anatomy is similar to that required for B.Sc. courses in the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, Cross River University of Technology.
    The UME entry requirements for the B.Sc. (Hons) degree program in Anatomy are five (5) credit passes at ordinary level SSCE or GCE which should include credit passes in the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, English Language obtained at not more than two sittings.

    CHECKING OF CREDENTIAL (SCREENING)
    Soon after registration of first year students and before final year examinations, students will be expected to present the originals of their credentials to the Academic Division of the Registry for verification. Final year students are expected to present the substantive certificate (not statement of results). Any student found to have made false claims shall be expelled.

    PROGRAMME STRUCTURE
    This four-year program has each year divided into two semesters. All courses offered in the Department are core courses and must be passed by the student who intends to graduate on the discipline of Anatomy.

    ORGANISATION OF PROGRAMME
    A program of study is provided leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Human Anatomy that may be awarded only as with Honors or as pass degree.
    Instruction for the program is organized into courses and each student is required to register for not less than 18-credit units and not more than 24 credits per semester. There are four levels of course organization numbers.
    1000 - 1999
    2000 - 2999
    3000 - 3999
    4000 - 4999
    The first digit indicates year of study, the two middle digits indicate area of study while the last digit indicates the semester in which the course is offered.
    Course numbers are prefixed by a three character discipline code e.g. ANA, CHM, BIO, MTH, PHY.

    DURATION OF PROGRAMME
    The normal period of the Bachelor’s degree in anatomy is four academic sessions while the maximum period shall be 50% above the number of academic sessions.

  • Conduction of Examinations in this University
    We run the semester system. We have two semesters in one a maximum of 24 credit units per semester. In exceptional cases, final year students may be allowed to register up to a maximum of 27 credit units per semester only on approval by senate or the chairman of senate on its behalf. We have two semesters in one academic year and one semester is approximately 18 weeks. About 15 weeks are reserved for teaching while the other 3 are for registration and examinations.

    Continuous Assessment
    During the semester, students are given take-home assignments, quizzes and tests in each course. These constitute continuous assessment. The scores in these exercises are recorded and they form part of the final grade in the given course.
    End of Semester Examinations
    At the end of each semester, students are given an organized examination together with the continuous assessment score, which form the final score in the given course.

    Admission to Examination
    The regulation provides that in order to be admitted for an examination, the student must have been registered for the course. He must have satisfied university and faculty requirement(s) regarding the performance of all assignments connected with the subject taught, the payment of fees and the 75% mandatory attendance at Lecture/practical.
    Examination Venue
    Under the regulations, it is the responsibility of each student to ensure that he/she is registered for the appropriate examination and ascertain the dates, times and places of the examinations for which he/she is registered.

    Reporting for Examination
    A student expected to be at the examination room at least 30 minutes before the advertised time for the examination. A students is also required to supply his/her own pens, pencils, rulers and other materials as may be specified in the examination instruction.
    A student can be admitted up to 30 minutes after the start of the examination but he/she cannot be allowed extra time. If the student arrives the examination venue later than 30 minutes after the start of the examination, an invigilator can present a written report of the circumstances to the departmental examination officer who shall inform the departmental board of examiners who shall decide whether to accept the student’s paper or not.

    Identification of Candidate
    Every student must produce the registration and identity card on entry to every examination and leave them prominently displayed on the desk for inspection by the invigilators throughout the examination.
    Leaving the Examination Room
    A student may be permitted by the invigilator to leave the examination during the course of an examination provided that:
    a. He/she does not do so within the first hour of an examination in case of emergency. In the event of a candidate being ill, the invigilator must complete the appropriate forms and send the sick candidate along with an examination attendant to medical centre and send a copy of such form to the department. The student must hand in his/her scripts to the invigilator before leaving the examination room.
    b. A student who leaves examination room shall not be readmitted unless throughout the period of his/her absence he or she has been continually under the supervision of an invigilator or a person duly appointed to him.

    Examination Malpractice
    The regulation provides that no student shall communicate with any student or with any other person(s), except with the invigilator when essential. In addition, no student shall make noise or cause any disturbance during an examination. The other provisions under this section are as follows:
    a. No book, paper, printed or written document handsets or any other aids may be taken into the examination room by any student, except as may be stated in the rubric of an examination paper. Any candidate found in possession of such items shall be reported in writing to the Departmental Board, which shall determine whether or not to accept the student’s script or make any other recommendations to the faculty Board of examiners.
    b. Each student is required to deposit at his/her own risk any handbag, brief case or similar articles at a desk provided for that purpose before the beginning of the examination.
    c. No student may, directly or indirectly, give assistance to any other student(s) or permit any other student(s) to copy from or otherwise use his papers. Similarly, a student must not directly or indirectly accept from any other student or any other unauthorized person(s).

    Punishment for Examination Malpractice
    If any student is found to violate or is suspected of violating any part of the guidelines for examinations or in any way cheats or disturbs the conduct of the examination, the invigilators shall apprehend the candidate concerned. Within the period of the examinations, such a student shall be made to submit a written report of the incident to the chief invigilator before his script is collected. The chief invigilator shall submit a written report to the chief examiner immediately after the examination. The chief examiner shall then instruct the circumstances to be investigated by the Departmental Board of Examiners who will subsequently recommend to the faculty. After establishing a prima facie case, the faculty shall immediately report the matter to the senate concerned for interview, giving opportunities for cross examination, and finally sending a recommendation to senate or chairman of senate.
    Every student in the department is advised on entry, to resist the temptation of getting involved in a malpractice case,. Any student found guilty of examination malpractice will be expelled from the University.

    Release of Examination Result
    a. Under the regulations, no student should be informed of result of any examination by any individual until it has been approved by the senate.
    b. Once examination results are approved by the senate, they are to be released to the candidates.
    Absence from Examination
    a. No student shall be excused from taking whole or part of any examination except on the strength of a medical certificate supplied or endorsed by the Director oftheUniversity Medical Services that he/she was unfit to take the examination. In such cases, the facts supported by evidence shall be submitted to the board of examiners by the Head of department and the Board shall make recommendations to senate for appropriate action. Medical reports obtained outside the University medical centre will be valid only when submitted within ONE month after discharge from the hospital.
    b. An application by a student, or, ifhe/she is incapacitated, by a person acting on his/her behalf for exemption from any examination on medical grounds can be submitted to the faculty examination board, through the head of department as soon as possible and normally not later than seven days after the date of the examination providing full relevant evidence. The faculty examination board shall thereupon consider all the evidence submitted to it including oral evidence, where appropriate, and make recommendations through the faculty board to senate. The decision of senate on such recommendations is final. This section of the regulations makes it almost mandatory for each student to have a folder in the University Medical Centre.
