THE DEPARTMENT OF ANATOMY occupies the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Calderon Hall of the U.P. COLLEGE OF MEDICINE. Its major facilities include the Dualan Anatomy Dissection laboratory, Histochemistry Laboratory, Histology East Microscopy laboratory, Bone Laboratory, Virtual Anatomy Laboratory (3D Anatomy tables) and an Embalming facility. We are committed to the development of a fully equipped state of the art academic unit of the College that will provide an optimum teaching and learning environment for our faculty, medical students and residents and fellows from the different clinical specialties of the UP-PGH Medical Center. Most recent renovations include the Histology East Microscopy laboratory, faculty lounge, faculty rooms, Class 1974 computer laboratory/conference room, bone laboratory, plastination/model room and the Dr. Mariano de la Cruz Jr. Alcove. A newly installed elevator allows transport of chemicals and cadavers from the ground floor of Calderon Hall to the Histochemistry laboratory and Dualan dissection laboratory respectively. Currently undergoing renovations are the Chairman’s complex, Histochemistry laboratory, Mariano V. de la Cruz Jr. Classroom and the J. Dualan dissection laboratory. Future plans for the department are the acquisition of a Virtual Histology slide scanner and renovation of the Embalming room with the incorporation of an 80-body cold storage facility.
The faculty staff of the department is composed of competent and accomplished specialists in their chosen fields in medicine. They are dedicated to teaching in the basic and clinical sciences and some have cross appointments with the clinical departments at the Philippine General Hospital. The faculty are involved in research activities in the basic and clinical sciences and serve as advisers to the researches of our medical students as well. As a testament to the zeal of its faculty and administrative staff in the fulfillment of its mission-vision, the department has consistently been chosen as the Most Outstanding Basic Science Department during the annual U.P. Medical Foundation Silver Cup Awards. The department takes pride in its faculty who have consistently garnered the most prestigious Dr. Augusto Camara Most Outstanding Teacher Award in the Basic Department and also the UPMASA Outstanding Teacher in the Basic Sciences in Learning Unit III. Likewise, the Most Outstanding Module in Learning Unit III has repeatedly been awarded to Organ System modules with course coordinators from the faculty of the department. Our faculty members occupy vital administrative positions at U.P. Manila, and serve as chairs and members of various committees of the College of Medicine and the Philippine General Hospital.
The Department of Anatomy, in close coordination with the other Basic Science and Clinical departments, implements the INTARMED curriculum of the U.P. College of Medicine by providing course coordinators, faculty members and Academic Committee Chairmanship for the Organ System Integrated Modules of Learning Unit III.
The Dr. Mariano V. de la Cruz Jr. Academic Excellence Award in Anatomy was initiated by the department 4 years ago and was given to the most deserving LU 3 medical student. This award came with monetary rewards from a perpetual endowment fund managed by the UPMASA. Aside from teaching medical students, the department regularly conducts Anatomy and Histology courses for the College of Dentistry and is involved in yearly review sessions in basic and clinical anatomy for the medical interns (LU VII) to jumpstart their preparations for the Physician’s Licensure Examination.
The department continues to be a partner of the clinical departments and sections of the UP-PGH Medical Center (ORL, Orthopedics, Colorectal Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Gastrointestinal Section, Neurosurgery, Dermatology) and the UP College of Dentistry in their training workshops by providing soft embalmed and formalin-preserved cadavers for skills training with the goal of ensuring patient safety. The department has pioneered the soft embalming (Modified Thiel) technique in the Philippines with our embalming facility and technical capability and has been a vital source of cadavers for medical schools as well as medical and surgical specialty societies throughout the country for their Anatomy and training skills workshops. The department will continue to grow and adapt to the challenges and changing needs of the time but always directed towards the fulfillment of the Mission-Vision of the College of Medicine.

A globally competitive department, employing modern facilities and teaching modalities conducive to optimum learning for students, and producing multidisciplinary research from committed and compe-tent faculty, with support from proficient administrative and technical staff.
The Department of Anatomy was one of the components of the Philippine Medical School when it opened on June 10, 1907. The department was housed in a one-story building occupied by the old School for the Deaf and Blind along Malecon Drive (now Bonifacio Drive). Lectures and laboratory ses-sions covered four subjects -- Gross Anatomy, Histology, Embryology and Neuroanatomy. Dr. Robert Bennett Bean, an anthropologist from Johns Hopkins Medical School, served as the first department head. During his term, he built the first modern dissection room and a laboratory for microscopic anatomy. He also pioneered the practice of preservation of cadavers for dissection, and started the collection of specimens for teaching and research in

In 1910, when the Philippine Medical School was relocated to Calle Herran (now Pedro Gil Street), the department was given the entire third floor and the east wing of the second floor of the new building. Now known as Fernando Calderon Hall, that building remains the home of the Department of Anato-my to this day.
Dr Arturo Garcia, returning from his training at the University of Colorado, was appointed the first Fili-pino head of the department in 1915. To develop the senior faculty, Dr. Garcia obtained fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation and the China Medical Board; consequently, Drs. Juan Nanagas, Mar-ciano Limson and Fidel Cuajunco, Sr. were sent to the US for further studies

In 1928, the department was granted an expansion so that it could occupy the entire second floor of Calderon Hall as well. With a new layout to accommodate 100 students, the facilities included four dis-section rooms, a preparation room, a private laboratory, a lecture room, an amphitheater and two la-boratories for microscopic anatomy.
Operations of the department continued throughout the Commonwealth Era and the Japanese occu-pation of the Philippines. The only interruption took place briefly during the battle for the liberation of Manila in 1945, when facilities were destroyed due to American bombardment. In the wake of the conflict, the department embarked on a swift recovery that saw resumption of classes within six months.
After World War II, major efforts were concentrated toward the improvement of skills, materials and equipment to enhance the teaching-learning process in anatomy. A new batch of faculty members was sent abroad to take post-graduate specializations. The new faculty members were Drs. Nestor S. Bautista (Neuroanatomy), Sesan M. Castro (Gross Anatomy), Mario S. de Villa (Histology), Jose N. Esteban (Histology), Nathaniel G. Ferrer (Neuroanatomy), Oscar M. Tangco (Histochemistry), and Vi-cente S. Versoza, Jr. (Embryology). Dr. Mariano V. dela Cruz, a US-board certified colorectal surgeon, was also successfully recruited as a full-time faculty member handling Gross Anatomy

The subjects offered were constantly evaluated and refined. In 1964, Embryology was transferred to the pre-medicine curriculum. In 1971, Gross Anatomy, Histology and Neuroanatomy were combined into one subject named Human Biologic Structure (HBS), in line with an early attempt of the College of Medicine at curriculum integration. Five years later, after the HBS strategy showed no distinct ad-vantage, the three were restored as separate disciplines. Gross Anatomy was further developed to include radiologic and clinical anatomy with correlations in orthopedics, otorhinolaryngology, surgery, dermatology and rehabilitation medicine.
In the mid-1980’s, in an effort to retain its roster of young faculty members who had interests in pur-suing clinical specializations as well as enhance faculty recruitment, the department initiated a program of basic-clinical partnership for residency training in the Philippine General Hospital. Under this scheme, a young faculty member will undergo a residency training program on a staggered timeline, spending the first 6 months in the basic department and the latter half of the year in the clinical de-partment. This hoped to further enhance teaching with basic and clinical correlation of human anato-my. Training abroad and specialized training have also been continually encouraged and supported. Two faculty members were sent to Japan for fellowship studies. Dr. Arlene A. Samaniego took post-graduate courses in histology while Dr. Noel G. Guison obtained a doctoral degree in neuroanatomy. Through the years, the department continued to adapt to the changing needs of the time. Infrastruc-ture developments within the department were undertaken attuned to the needs of the students and faculty.
As always, all endeavors are geared towards achieving the vision and fulfilling the mission of the de-partment, the college and the university.

1. Modified Thiel Embalming Method
The UPCM Department of Anatomy believes that cadaver dissection is the best method for 3-dimensional study of the human body. Traditionally, the anatomy laboratory has used cadavers preserved in formalin. Aside from being a highly toxic substance, it also greatly alters tissue characteristics so that the preserved specimens only poorly resemble tissue in vivo. Through the sponsorship of Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) in 2015, Dr. Pio Renato F. Villacorta visited the Virginia Department of Health in the United States to study the Modified Thiel Embalming Method.
Cadavers preserved by this method are “soft embalmed” using less formalin. This results in specimens that more faithfully approximate living tissue, without the undesirable toxic effects of the preservative.
The Department of Anatomy has successfully duplicated the process, and has produced 6 soft-embalmed cadavers, making the UP College of Medicine the first medical school in the Philippines to do so. Utilizing this method results in a safer and more effective teaching-learning environment for medical students, faculty and staff.
