The Master of Science (M.Sc) in Medical Visualization is a new one-year taught postgraduate programme offered by the Digital Design Studio at The Glasgow School of Art in collaboration with the Laboratory of Human Anatomy, University of Glasgow.

The purpose of this programme is to create a unique opportunity to combine actual cadaveric dissection with 3D digital reconstruction, interaction and visualisation using state of the art virtual reality facilities. It allows a unique opportunity to examine human anatomy, and to reconstruct it in a real-time 3D environment for use in education, simulation, and training. This programme will enable students to create original medical datasets, allow a greater understanding of “normal” anatomy, regional variations, and provide a novel approach to aid multi-disciplinary fields in anatomical knowledge, understanding, training and skills transfer. With the demand from clinicians of anatomical knowledge of students increasing (as a result in changes to medical and dental curricula) this Masters programme provides an ideal opportunity for enhancement of research into human anatomy, diagnostics, simulation, and visualisation.

Students undertaking the

MSc in Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy

programme will split their time equally between the University of Glasgow (Laboratory of Human Anatomy) and the Glasgow School of Art (Digital Design Studio). The programme is delivered as two core areas – digital technologies applied to medical visualisation (delivered by the Digital Design Studio at Stage 1) and human anatomy (delivered by the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at Stage 2). In Stage 3, students work towards a large-scale self directed final project, supported throughout by individual supervision.

Subsequent career opportunities exist within the commercial healthcare technology industry (device manufacturer, etc.), the public and private healthcare sectors, as well as in academic medical visualisation research. Career outcomes for the students with medical, biomedical, anatomy, or health professional backgrounds will be able to gain 3D visualisation skills that will enhance their portfolio of abilities; students with computer science or 3D graphics background will be involved in the design and development of healthcare related products through digital technology, e.g. diagnostic and clinical applications, creating content involving medical visualisation, simulation, cardiac pacemakers, and biomechanically related products for implantation, such as knee, hip and shoulder joint replacements.

Although just one intake per year in September, students can attend this programme on a part-time basis.

Why this programme

-You will examine human anatomy and reconstruct it in a real-time 3D environment for use in education, simulation, and training.
-You will have access to the largest stereo 3D lab in Europe, and its state-of-the-art facilities such as laser scanner (for 3D data acquisition), stereo 3D projection, full body motion capture system, haptic devices and ambisonic sound.
-You will also have access to the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at the University of Glasgow, one of the largest in Europe.
-The programme has excellent industry connections through research and commercial projects and there are possible internship opportunities. You will benefit from guest lectures by practitioners, researchers and experts from industry.
-This programme is accredited by the Institute of Medical Illustrators.

Programme structure

You will split your time between the Glasgow School of Art (Digital Design Studio) and the University of Glasgow (Laboratory of Human Anatomy). The programme is structured into three stages.

Stage One: digital technologies applied to medical visualisation (delivered by the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art)
Core courses
-3D modelling and animation
-Applications in medical visualisation
-Volumetric and 3D surface visualisation
-Core research skills for postgraduates.

Stage Two: human anatomy (delivered by the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at the University of Glasgow).
Core courses
-Introduction to anatomy
-Structure and function of the human body
-Cadaveric dissection techniques.

In Stage Three you will complete a self-directed final project, supported throughout with individual supervision.

Career prospects

Career opportunities exist within the commercial healthcare device manufacturer, the public and private healthcare sectors, as well as in academic medical visualisation research. Students with medical, biomedical, anatomy, or health professional backgrounds will be able to gain 3D visualisation skills that will enhance their portfolio of abilities; students with computer science or 3D graphics background will be involved in the design and development of healthcare related products through digital technology, eg diagnostic and clinical applications, creating content involving medical visualisation, simulation, cardiac pacemakers, and biomechanically related products for implantation, such as knee, hip and shoulder joint replacements.

Here are some examples of roles and companies for our graduates:
-Interns and Clinical Assistants at Toshiba Medical Visualisation Systems
-Research Prosector (GU)
-3D printing industry
-Demonstrators in Anatomy
-PhD studies - medical history, medical visualisation
-Medical School
-Dental School
