(taught anatomy),  Dr.Mardar G.I., Candidate of Medical Science., Dr.Krypskaya S.I., and Dr.Beluh T.P. (taught histology, cytology, and embryology). In November of 1992 an anatomist Dr.Ustyanskiy O.A., Docent., Candidate of Medical Science joined the department and in March of 1993 a histologist Vasko L.V., Candidate of Biological Science. Since September of 1993 physicians Sylim L.G and Bolotnaya I.V. have been working  as instructors at the department. In March of 1994 professor Sikora V.Z. and docent Il'in V.E. joined the crew of instructors at the department.

The Ukrainian Olympiad of topographical anatomy and operative surgery was held at the base of the department for three consecutive years from 2002 to 2004. At the Olympiad, the students of our Faculty three times took the first place. Since 1997 till 2006 the students of the department of human anatomy participated in all Ukrainian Olympiads of anatomy where they every year took first, second, and third places.
