Anatomy Department is placed in the ground and the first floors: Operative Surgery and Topographical Anatomy Departments occupy the second floor; Pathological Anatomy Department is on the third floor; Histology, Clinical Microbiology and Forensic Medicine are on two upper floors. The most up-to-date equipment found there will help teachers and students in their scientific activity.

The ultra modern equipment allows using the latest techniques (multimedia presentations, electronic magazines. The crucial point is that every department of the Morphological building has two or more laboratories.
