Students studying the MSc in Clinical Anatomy are very much part of our research community, and experience much of their learning through research and inquiry. This leads to our students producing high quality research for their dissertation, which we encourage and support them to publish in academic journals.
Our students' latest published dissertations for the MSc in Clinical Anatomy and MSc in Clinical Anatomy and Education are:
