The institute offers the undergraduate students a modern integrated teaching with a clear focus on functional and clinical anatomy. We closely collaborate with other preclinical institutes and the clinics of the faculty of veterinary medicine. Our theoretical instruction and practical training in anatomy, histology and embryology is application-oriented. Morphological knowledge is linked directly to clinical cases and problems. The presentations of theoretical knowledge in context with the application of this knowledge is a core element of our teaching. The gross anatomical dissection is an essential part of the education of veterinarians because it conveys important manual skills, anatomic knowledge in the context of the body as well as an understanding of three-dimensional relationships of structures and organs. The institute offers its students a variety of possibilities for individual self-directed learning. A broad spectrum of electronic materials allows the students self-directed preparation and repetition of the material and thus creates the prerequisite and environment for an optimal learning success.
