Greetings From the Chair
Robert V. Hill, Ph.D.
On behalf of the Department of Anatomy of the College of Osteopathic Medicine of New York Institute of Technology, welcome. Our faculty, staff, and students are committed to excellence in research and education in the anatomical sciences.
As one of the College of Osteopathic Medicine's basic science departments, we participate in the preclinical curriculum for students pursuing the D.O. degree. We believe that excellence in osteopathic medicine relies on a keen understanding of human anatomy, and to that end, we proudly teach human gross anatomy to over 300 students each year. We also provide anatomy lab instruction for NYIT's Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy programs, as well as postgraduate educational sessions for surgery residents. Our faculty have received numerous awards and accolades for excellence in teaching.
Our faculty members conduct research in the anatomical sciences, focusing on comparative anatomy, paleontology, paleoecology, evolution, and clinical anatomy. We use classical methods such as dissection, as well as cutting-edge technology such as CT scanning to explore the anatomy of vertebrate animals. Our faculty participate in fieldwork and professional collaborations around the world, in countries including Mexico, Senegal, and Mongolia. Our research has gained an international reputation, is published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and books, and has gained the support of granting agencies such as the National Science Foundation.
