Human Anatomy with Education
Department of Biomedical Science,
Faculty of Science
Understanding human anatomy is integral to a wide range of clinical and scientific disciplines including medicine, dentistry, archaeology, forensic science and bioengineering. A reduction in the number of universities nationally and internationally offering training in human anatomy has led to a shortfall in those qualified to work in the fields associated with the discipline.
This course offers the opportunity not only to develop an in-depth understanding of anatomy through cadaveric dissection but also extensive training to become an accredited anatomy teacher.
We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. Find out more on the Medical School's website.
