Overview

The certificate is designed to allow choice and foster personal development. Plenty of opportunity will be given to students to develop their skills in anatomy and dissections using human cadaveric specimens.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Clinical Anatomy (60 M Level credits) consists of three modules, the two core modules are compulsory; Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 worth 15 M Level credits, and Applied Clinical Anatomy 2 worth 30 M Level credits. To facilitate ongoing personal development and make up the required 60 Masters Level credits, the student can choose a further optional module related to the aims of the certificate. Students may transfer their credits to an MSc (Health Sciences) or an MSc (Neuromusculoskeletal Healthcare). There are many Masters Level modules available to choose from within the University.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/appliedclinicalanatomypgcert/

Course Aims

To promote the acquisition of applied anatomical knowledge and skills and the application of anatomical science.

Course Content

The certificate consists of three modules (two core compulsory plus one option).

- Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 (core) worth 15 M Level credits. This module will cover histology, embryology, identification of prosections, gross anatomy of various systems, radiology, preserving, and embalming. The gross anatomy will be linked to functional and clinical relevance

- Applied Clinical Anatomy 2 (core) worth 30 M Level credits. Through student-led tutorials, theoretical and practical studies including dissections, the student will cover in-depth, the theoretical and practical aspects of knowledge relating to the student’s chosen anatomical focus

- One option module to the value of 15 credits at Masters Level

There are many Masters Level modules available within the Faculty and the wider University. The Academic Year starts in September, and is divided into two semesters; one core module will be available in each semester. This allows the student the freedom to select an optional module within either semester.

Teaching & Assessment

The programme of study will be delivered through block teaching sessions and self-directed study (See individual modular specification for details of hours etc). Teaching format will be lecturers, seminars, discussions, problem-solving sessions, tutorials, and dissections to address theoretical and practical aspects of applied clinical anatomical knowledge. The student is expected to complete at least double the amount of self directed study.

A variety of modes of assessment are offered. For the Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 module – the student can choose their own mode of assessment from the selection given, for example, assignment, presentation or an interactive practical examination. For the Applied Clinical Anatomy 2, the student will present a portfolio of evidence of their experiential learning during the process of exploring in-depth the theoretical and practical aspects of clinical anatomical knowledge relating to the students chosen field of knowledge. This will include a 4000-word assignment, 4 laboratory reports including such activities as dissections, clinical meetings etc, a 2500 word reflective piece demonstrating experiential learning and finally the evidence of experiential learning.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this post graduate programme.
