  • I’m not saying that the answerer above me is incorrect, but divisions are not the same thing as body systems (e.g. digestive, circulatory, skeletal, etc). But maybe that’s what you’re looking for as an answer?

    Based on the phrasing of your question, the main divisions of human anatomy are:
    1. Gross (macroscopic) anatomy, which includes subdivisions such as regional anatomy, systemic anatomy, and surface anatomy.
    2. Microscopic anatomy, which includes subdivisions such as cytology and histology.
    3. Developmental anatomy, which includes subdivisions like embryology.

  • Usually, anatomy is divided into systems.

    I couldn’t find a complete list of them, but I think this is about right:
    musculoskeletal (sometimes split up into muscular and skeletal)
    digestive
    respiratory
    endocrine
    nervous
    reproductive
    circulatory/cardiovascular
    urinary
    integumantary
    lymphatic

    When writing about these, remember to add ‘system’ to the end of each one — musculoskeletal system, endocrine system, etc.

    **Edit: Niotulove’s answer makes sense as well… either of us, or neither of us, could be correct. If you can add some detail or context to your question I might be able to help you more.
