Course description

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 to develop an in-depth understanding of anatomy through cadaveric dissection and the extensive training you need to become an accredited anatomy teacher.
