As a study

Anatomy is the core subject of every health care study. The knowledge of body parts, their layout, boundaries and contents etc. form the very foundation of knowledge of the human body and is vital to every health care practitioner and student. The other subjects almost stem and advance from here and hence without proper knowledge of anatomy one wouldn’t be able to effectively and efficiently participate inpatient care (one of the major reasons why every health care professional regularly revises his/her subjects and stays updated).

Uses of Applied Anatomy
