The MSc in Clinical Anatomy and education is designed to provide advanced training in clinically applied human anatomy. The programme is built around core dissection-based modules and offers you the opportunity to conduct whole body dissection in a newly developed Thiel embalmed and plastination facility. 

You can tailor the programme to suit your individual interests and will learn from expert tutors as well as experienced clinicians. This programme is designed especially for intercalated medical students, anatomy teachers, trainee surgeons, physiotherapists, sports scientists and other health professionals.

In addition to developing advanced anatomical skills and knowledge, this programme provides a comprehensive professional education that focuses on developing teachers and researchers of anatomy. You will be trained in pedagogical techniques that will allow you to teach anatomy to students and health care professionals.

Future prospects

This programme will enable you to develop advanced anatomical skills and knowledge through the application of topographical, biomechanical and educational knowledge to translate the experience of handling cadaveric anatomy to the functional anatomy of the living person.

You will learn to critically appraise and reflectively apply advanced anatomical acumen to inform clinical decision making. The programme will develop your knowledge and skills to undertake and deliver high quality research in clinical anatomy and related disciplines.
