Abstract: Anatomy became a recognised discipline under the Great Alexandrians (300-250 BC), of whom Herophilus (300 BC) is often considered as the Father of Anatomy. Galen (130-200 AD) published numerous anatomical works which, for a long time, were used in teaching Anatomy. Teaching by dissection began with Mondino (c. 1276-1326). In the early 14th century. Modern Anatomy however, originated in the mid-16th century When dissection became somewhat more common; Vesalius (1514- 1564) is often looked upon as the Father of Modern Anatomy. Eustachius was followed by Fabricius, one of the greatest teachers of Anatomy.
