About the MSc in Clinical Anatomy
The MSc in Clinical Anatomy provides unique opportunities to immerse yourself in the practical and in-depth study of clinical anatomy. The programme is built around core dissection-based modules, and a range of complimentary optional modules allowing you to gain an in-depth understanding of all the fundamental pillars of anatomy, including embryology, neuroanatomy, histology and radiology. You will be encouraged to be a self-directed learner and challenge your knowledge and ways of thinking about the human body.
This programme offers you the opportunity to conduct whole-body dissection and in doing so develop a deep understanding of the complex nature of the whole of the human body and how that relates to your clinical practice. You will gain the unique experience of working with a range of cadaveric material preserved using Thiel, Formalin and plastination embalming techniques. In particular, dissection using Thiel-embalmed cadavers offers the benefit of viewing material which is as close to living tissue as possible.
You will have the opportunity to learn from experts at the forefront of new developments in clinical anatomy, who create a dynamic and supportive learning environment as part of a diverse and welcoming community. As well as learning from their expertise, you will be challenged to think differently and learn how to become a self-directed learner as you continue to develop your anatomy knowledge throughout your career.
This programme also features guest seminars from visiting surgeons and consultants, who will bring patient cases to share with you, so you can apply your knowledge within a clinical context. These experts come from a range of specialties and include plastic, cardiothoracic and orthopaedic surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists and emergency medicine doctors.
