Course summary

Our anatomy course will give you a deep and thorough understanding of human, clinical, functional, and applied anatomy.

By carrying out full body dissection on Thiel embalmed cadavers, you will gain an in-depth understanding of human anatomy. These cadavers are soft-fix, which means they retain real-life qualities, including colour, tissue quality, and flexibility. This makes dissection easier, functional, and much more realistic.

Practical anatomical techniques that you'll carry out include:

  • developing an innovative student online learning resource
  • cutting, staining and mounting a good quality histology slide
  • producing a sheet plastinated specimen
  • learning how to embalm

You will also learn about other anatomical sciences such as embryology and neuroanatomy. You can combine your interest in anatomy with other skills such as anatomical preservation techniques, biomechanics, or your learning and teaching practice.

You will have access to our flexible teaching space, our anatomy museum, and a range of online resources, some of which were produced by our own students.

Careers:

Our course is designed to produce confident, intellectual, critical thinkers, with excellent anatomical knowledge and skills, and the ability to solve difficult problems. You should also develop a keen level of ethics and integrity through interaction with our body donors.

Our graduates are largely in the medical or allied professions. Once graduated, you can go on to work as:

  • medical doctors or surgeons
  • dental surgeons
  • physiotherapists
  • university academics
  • school teachers
  • medical laboratory technicians

You could also work in:

  • digital anatomical resource companies
  • medical sales companies.
