We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Anatomy allow students to examine the structure and biological functions of various organisms (predominantly the human body), including tissue, organs and biological systems.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Human Anatomy, Clinical Anatomy and Anatomical Sciences. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine or Biology.
Human anatomy is one of the essential sciences of medicine, and therefore holds great importance within current medical, healthcare and pharmaceutical practices.
Training typically involves increasing your awareness and technical capabilities within current methodologies of macroscopic and microscopic anatomy. Macroscopic anatomy includes standard examination of body parts with the naked eye. On the other hand, microscopic anatomy involves the use of optical instruments to study tissues and cells at a magnified state, such as through electron microscopy.
The skills which you will gain from a Masters in Anatomy are applicable to a range of careers. For example, many anatomists work within sports rehabilitation and coaching, including physiotherapy. You may also wish to specialise in Animal Anatomy, and pursue a career as a veterinarian.
