History: The foundations of Department “Anatomy, histology and physiology” date back to 1994, when the Faculty of Veterinary medicine was restored within the University of Forestry. Then, under the name “Anatomy, histology and embryology” it was the first department in the Faculty, headed by Professor Georgi Kovachev, Dr.Sc. Then in 1999 the Department was merged with Department of “Pre-clinical Veterinary sciences” (Head Prof. Nikola Sedloev). The newly established department of “Anatomy, histology and embryology” was headed by Prof. Yoncho Kostov, Dr. Sc. Currently, the department provides teaching in the following subjects: “Cytology and histology”, “Embriology”, “Anatomy of domestic animals” (systematic and topographic anatomy), “Animal physiology”. There were separated departments with the same names in the structure of the Faculty of Veterinary medicine of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” (1923). The same subjects were taught also in the Higher Institute of Veterinary medicine “Prof. Dr. G. Pavlov”, Sofia, until 1974, when the Institute became a faculty within the structure of the Higher Institute of Zootechnics and Veterinary Medicine in Stara Zagora. The subject “Animal ethology” has been taught since 1995. In the new curriculum of the department in 2016, are included and taught two new disciplines - Morphological practice and Clinical anatomy.
